Book Description

4 Oct 2010
'A global Internet sensation...hilarious' the Daily Mail For a long time entomologists have been studying the life of the common housefly, but with limited success. Recently, however, a Swedish photographer, Magnus Muhr, has managed to reveal that flies live pretty much like we do. In this extroardinary record of fly behaviour, witness them as never before as they sunbathe, go horse riding, queue for the toilets, hang out the washing and even perform their own version of Riverdance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and creative 4 Oct 2011
By Miss M
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The pictures have indeed been circulating on the internet for a few years now but the book shows plenty of pictures you haven't seen before. It's a great little present, great for your coffee table, great for kids, too. I have ordered several of them and so far everyone loved it. I think it's more than just a book of dead flies, there is a story in every picture!

ok, so basically photos of dead flies but a great gift for any age...........have bought for several 'boys' in the family and friends. A great coffee table or toilet book! Funny, thought provoking, clever, artistic and downright wacky!
