Synopsis

Stanley's Stick by Neal Layton

Stanley's stick it not just a stick. With a stick in hand, Stanley's options are endless -- he flies to moon, writes in the sand, goes fishing, plays a whistle and rides a dinosaur - and his imagination takes over and the magic begins. Stanley shows that seeing truly depends on the ability to believe in the possibilities.
