I Fly: The Buzz About Flies and How Awesome They Are by Bridget Heos
This picture book is a funny science book about the common housefly. The narrator is a cartoon fly who quizzes a classroom of kids as to their knowledge about flies. Beyond the "ew" factor of maggots, eating garbage etc. this book is a hilarious introduction to a common (but little discussed) insect. The main fly character is full of personality as he extols the virtues of his fellow flies. At the back of the book there's a glossary and bibliography for further information.
