Welcome to Mr. Nate Books!

Flies Ate My Fries is the 2nd book launched Fall 2019 capturing the real life issue of flies! Sometimes kids destruction of things around them have good intentions, like getting rid of flies from food, the home, restaurant, grocery store, and many other places. Without thinking beyond their actions, kids begin whacking at things like flies and often miss and destroy. Parents have the challenge in training kids up to become adults to lovingly instruct them on how best to go about doing things a little better with their good intentions, especially avoiding gross situations like when flies are on dog doodoo! Many times though, the natural consequences of kid's actions often become the best teacher -- like when the fly lands on the kids face and the parents had warned to be careful whacking at flies!


Go on the disastrous hunt for flies that swarm a little boy's life. The flies are everywhere he goes from his home, to the classroom, and even on his fries! He hunts, slapping at them but only to miss and whack everything the flies swarm. Who wins in the end when a fly lands right between his eyes? Every flip of the page, you can verbally make the loud noise 'whack' while slapping your hands together to get the hunting sound effects. Imagine the last sound effect at the end of the book and laugh!

Flies Ate My Fries is a great book for parents, grandparents, and teachers that provides a comical journey and discussion of what boys tend to do early in their life -- act first and think later! The book does not provide counsel at the end or what to say to your own kids, but purposely allows you to review or begin talking through how best not to destroy the world for something so small! It's a great book all around from the mere fact we can laugh together as well as be used for instruction. The book and real life makes us laugh, and for the smaller, listening kids they love whacking the flies on the page and the older kids make the loud clapping sounds with their hands. Enjoy reading together and keep loving those kids (or grandkids)!
