I know the target audience for The Boy Who Swallows Flies by Michael F Stewart is 4-7, but I am young at heart and loved every minute of it. How about you?

Michael F Stewart has a way of taking a simple story and leading me down a road I didn’t anticipate, but am so very happy to travel. He layers bits on top of bits and I cannot imagine any child…or any person, for that matter…not reveling in his imaginative, creative and excellently written stories that leave me anticipating the next one.
Jerrod faints a lot, thus the helmet on the cover. His falling out isn’t all bad, in fact there is a benefit, but he’s loathe to share it and I’m sure not going to tell you. You will have to read this wonderful story to find out for yourself.
Gavin is his only friend, other than the bugs he collects. He is the Bug boy, and he revels in it. Gavin is gifted, very smart. Jerrod thinks he’s the dumbest kid in school, but Gavin doesn’t believe that. He just believes Jerrod hasn’t found his ‘aptitude’ yet.
I love the world he lives in…letting some of his bugs run free in his room. Like Jerrod, we all have something special to offer the world, we just have to find out ‘talent’. You never know what will lead to your future, so you need to keep your eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and hands open.
I can see how Micheal F Stewart has left the options open for more daring adventures with Jarrod, Gavin, and Jarrod’s new friend, Dog girl. Please say it’s so, Michael.
