Classic character Stanley - made flat when a billboard fell on him - is back for an exciting new adventure inspired by the original Flat Stanley titles. This time Stanley responds to an archaeologist who wants some help. So Stanley posts himself off to Egypt so that he can set about finding the ancient treasure that is hidden in the pyramid. Stanley has to keep his wits about him to beat the tomb raiders and save the treasure.

Synopsis

Flat Stanley -The Great Egyptian Grave Robbery by Jeff Brown

Stanley travels by airmail to Egypt to help find an ancient treasure deep in the heart of a great pyramid. But what if even the flattest boy on earth can't wriggle out of this dark tomb - and the terrible mess he finds himself in?

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!"
