A fun story about the frustrations of a man trying to keep a fly away from his apple pie! You can read the story yourself or have it narrated by the expressive and clear narrator. 

The fly in question is 'in training' which makes the story really amusing...  Watch how the fly manages to win each round of their ongoing battle for house supremacy!  Watch as Mr Sty gets more and more agitated as the fly gets smarter, following the instructions in his Fly Learners Kit!

Great illustrations, educationally based story, plus activities, makes this book a real winner for children for all ages and special needs. 

The Activity pages include spot the flies, mazes, find the hidden words, spot the difference, number paths and identify the fly Kit.  These games that provide extra fun after reading the book. 

The Activity Pages and Guide Notes are magnificent.  The Guide Notes show great ideas on how to use the book to forward your child's or pupil's education.  There are conversation suggestions, tasks to complete, ideas, problems, discussions, questions and quizzes, plus high quality information.  The general subjects are: Cooking, Language, Art, Science, Health and Safety, Maths and Social/Emotional/Moral Development. 

 These Activity Pages really do set these Susan Syddall books part from others.
