One itty-bitty fly creates a whole lot of drama in this rhyming tale that's sure to "captivate beginning listeners and beginning readers alike" (Horn Book Magazine). As Tiny Little Fly buzzes around Great Big Elephant, the pachyderm's temper is increasingly provoked. Just as the elephant gives a mighty "TRAMP! CRUSH! TRAMP!" and lunges after the noisy pest, Tiny Little Fly zips away. The fly's next victims, Hippo and Tiger, are also too slow, but when all three large animals join forces…we won't spoil the ending, except to say that it takes a four-page foldout to capture all of the muddy mayhem!
