Flat Stanley Series

by , ,
  • (69 reviews)

    Flat Stanley is a classic American children’s book series for readers 5+. What started out as a bedtime story for author Jeff Brown’s sons, soon became a bestseller and there are now more than twenty Flat Stanley books, published all over the world.

    Since the author’s death in 2003 several other writers, including Sara Pennypacker and Jon Mitchell, have continued Jeff Brown’s books in Flat Stanley’s Worldwide Adventures. And in 2017, more than fifty years after the first book was published, new editions were released illustrated by award-winning author/ illustrator Rob Biddulph.

    Stanley Lambchop is an ordinary boy with an extraordinary problem. Since the night a giant pinboard fell on top of him, he has been completely flat. There are benefits to Stanley’s strange predicament - he can slide under doors and be posted to his friends for a holiday - but it’s not always easy being different and, once the novelty begins to wear off, Stanley wishes he could be just like everybody else again.

    The Flat Stanley books are perfect for newly independent readers thanks to the fun illustrations, short chapters and crazy adventures.
