The Lovereading4Kids comment
Meet Stanley Lambchop, the ordinary boy with an extraordinary problem. He’s been four feet tall, about a foot wide but only half an inch thick ever since a big noticebaord fell on him and flattens him out. But Stanley has all sorts of adventures, from being rolled up, sent in the post and even flown like a kite. But as Stanley discovers it’s not always fun to be different all the time. Boys and girls will love this in equal measure.
Jeff Brown created the character of Flat Stanley when one of his own sons said he was frightened that the noticeboard above his bed might flatten him in the night!
For children who want to move on from picture books to books with short chapters but featuring the same character such as Flat Stanley, then why not take a look at these.
Flat Stanley - Picture Book by Jeff Brown
Stanley Lambchop is an ordinary boy with an extraordinary problem. One night, a giant pinboard falls on top of him leaving him completely flat. At first, Stanley enjoys the benefits of his strange predicament - it can be fun going in out of rooms simply by sliding under the door. And it's a hoot being posted to your friends in California for a holiday. But it's not always easy being different, and, once the novelty begins to wear off, Stanley wishes he could be just like everybody else again. But how will he ever fill out?
