The Lovereading4Kids comment

Stanley is a perfectly ordinary little boy until an extra large notice board falls on top of him and makes him completely flat. Luckily, Stanley is of a cheerful disposition and he adapts readily to his new, flat self and even finds advantages to it. Lots of funny adventures in an easy to read style.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Stanley Lambchop is squashed flat by a notice board that falls on him. It's fun - at first - to be flown like a kite but the 'flat' adventures quickly pall and he is thrilled to be reinflated by his brother.

Synopsis

Flat Stanley - Chapter Book by Jeff Brown

Flat Stanley Stanley Lambchop wakes up one morning to find a notice-board has dropped on him in the night, leaving him happy and healthy, but only half an inch thick. It's a little unusual, but he finds he can fly like a kite, be sent on holiday through the post and can use his special new skills to catch some art thieves. Still, he's glad when his brother Arthur thinks to use the bicycle pump to inflate him back to his normal shape.

About the Author

Jeff Brown

Jeff Brown was born Richard Chester Brown.

In Hollywood he worked for the producer Samuel Goldwyn Jr. and was a story consultant at Paramount. Preferring to write himself, he sold fiction and articles to national magazines while working at The New Yorker, Life, The Saturday Evening Post, Esquire and finally at Warner Books, where he was a senior editor until 1980.

The idea for Stanley came to him one night at bedtime when his sons J. C. and Tony were young and stalling for time. One asked what would happen if the big bulletin board on the wall were to fall on J. C., and Mr. Brown said he would most likely wake up flat. That led to speculation about what such a life might be like.

After writing "Flat Stanley, " Mr. Brown went on to "Stanley and the Magic Lamp," "Stanley in Space," "Stanley's Christmas Adventure," "Invisible Stanley" and finally "Stanley, Flat Again!"
