The classic character Flat Stanley, a boy who is only half an inch thick after a billboard falls on him, is back in book made up of three short stories which is perfectly designed for first readers. How Stanley makes use of his unusual size in a series of scary situations is a delight.
This is a funny, spooky story about everyone's favourite flat boy! Stanley and his brother Arthur are going to their school's Halloween party. They dress up in costumes and Stanley is particularly looking forward to the limbo competition. They're rather disappointed by the haunted house, though - it's really not very scary. But when they see a bully upsetting their friend Martin, they decide to teach him a lesson - by being very scary indeed.
