Astrid the Fly by Maria Jonsson - ADVISABLE

Jonsson, Maria Astrid the Fly.  PICTURE BOOK.  Holiday House, 2015.  $17.  Content: G.  

Astrid knows better than to fly around too much during the day, because the Big Bang and the Horrible Inhaling Machine are busy.  But she can’t resist Danish salami, which is kept in a cold, dark place.

If any book can get you to feel sympathetic towards flies, this book would probably be it.  I tried to resist – especially when I met the whole family living behind the couch – but I just couldn’t.  Astrid is pretty cute.
