Comments for Diary of a Fly

Diary of a Fly: 05/18/10

Diary of a Fly cover art (Link goes to Powells)Sean's had a copy of Diary of a Worm since he was a toddler. Recently he read Diary of a Fly by Doreen Cronin at school and insisted I read it too. Since I try to read all the books my children recommend to me I grabbed a copy from the library.

Diary of a Fly comes as a the sequel to Diary of a Spider. Here the main character is a fly who wants more than anything some time away from her 327 siblings.

Like Diary of a Worm and I'm assuming Diary of a Spider chronicles the childhood of the main character. The fly describes her childhood as a maggot and her first day of school and typical day to day life at school and home. It's a nice combination of gross out humor and relatable events.

The books in the Diary series

  • Diary of a Worm (2003)
  • Diary of a Spider (2005)
  • Diary of a Fly (2007)
