Alfie's house is invaded by flies. His fly-trap plant is too small to eat them all so the wise old plant uses magic to make it bigger.

Then it gets BIGGER and BIGGER and BIGGER. Nothing is safe! Alfie decides the only place for the Giant Fly Trapper is in the Belching Bogs in Arcania.

But to get there he must outwit the creatures of the Nanabur Mines and the deadly worm monster.

Alfie Green and the Fly-Trapper is the fourth book in the Alfie Green series.

Joe O'Brien lives in Ballyfermot in Dublin with his wife and children. He is the author of nine books featuring Alfie Green, a boy who can talk to plants. For older readers he has written three books about Danny Wilde and his Littlestown Crokes GAA team, Legends' Lair (about Charlie Stubbs and his dreams of becoming a soccer player) and one fantasy novel, Beyond the Cherry Tree. He has appeared on RTE's The Den, TV3's Ireland AM and many radio shows. He regularly holds readings in bookshops and libraries around the country.
