When a hairy fly with sticky toes collides with Crocodile’s nose, the fly won’t shoo, leading to a rompin’, stompin’ battle of weight versus wit, resulting in a most unexpected ending. SAY GOODBYE, HAIRY FLY will appeal to readers who enjoy STICK, THERE WAS AN OLD GATOR WHO SWALLOWED A MOTH, and SNAPPSY THE ALLIGATOR (DID NOT ASK TO BE IN THIS BOOK).
I have worked with children throughout my career as a nursery school teacher, camp counselor, and instructional assistant with special education students. I have been published in Highlights Magazine and Children’s Writer. I am a member of SCBWI, and a graduate of The Institute of Children’s Literature, Art and Business of Writing Children’s Picture Books Course, Writing in Rhyme Course, and Lyrical Language Lab. I have attended many SCBWI conferences and events, and am a sixth year member of 12×12 Challenge.
A hairy fly with sticky toes
collided with my knobby nose.
I squinted down my snout to see
two eyeballs staring back at me.
I shook my head and gave a nudge.
The hairy fly refused to budge.
I flung my head from side to side.
I think the fly enjoyed the ride.
