The story of Fred the Fly relates to a period when Fred enters an open window of a house and settles on the side of a jug of cream. His anticipation at being able to sample some of that cream is swiftly ended when he is hit by the mistress of the house, who was holding a rolled up newspaper in her hand. Fred hides behind the window blind, recovering from the attack, when another swish from the mistress sends the blind crashing down, throwing Fred into a container of potato peelings and other vegetables. Fred then begins a journey to the top of the garden and a whole new adventure involving his enemy, Sam the Spider, and his friends, Cedric the Slug and Harry the Snail.

Author Biography

The author, Joe Carr, is a eighty-year-old retired police officer, married, with two daughters and six grandchildren, aged between 10 and 2 years old. The reading of stories to both his own children, and later the grandchildren, nurtured the seed of writing his own story book. The characters in the book are all well-known to children from an early age. The story has been left open-ended for, perhaps, further adventures by the characters mentioned.
