LoveReading View on Flat Stanley Bumper Collection

September 2011 Guest Editor David Almond: "I was at university by the time I came across my youngest sister’s copy of this book. I loved it straight from the first sentence. It was perfectly believable that Stanley Lambchop woke up one morning to find he’d been squashed flat by a notice board. It seemed just the kind of thing that Kafka might have come up with for 7 year olds, and showed what wonderful work was being done in the world of children’s books. As a budding young writer, I’d always wanted to be Kafka, but now I found I also wanted to be Jeff Brown. It’s a funny weird deadpan classic."

Flat Stanley Bumper Collection Synopsis

Here's three favourite Flat Stanley books in a beautiful boxed treasury – ‘Flat Stanley’, ‘Invisible Stanley’ and ‘Stanley in Space’. Stanley Lambchop was just an ordinary boy until a large notice board fell on him and made him flat - only half an inch thick! Stanley gets rolled up, sent in the post, flown like a kite, and helps catch dangerous criminals! Then, he becomes invisible and discovers he can do amazing things like perform magic and foil a daring robbery! But, things get even more exciting when the President of the United States chooses Stanley and his family to become the first humans aboard a new top-secret spaceship!  Stanley gets to have his birthday in outer space and meet aliens!  Being flat is fantastic fun!
