When Stanley Lambchop wakes up one morning, his brother, Arthur, is yelling. A bulletin board fell on Stanley during the night, and now he is only half an inch thick! Amazing things begin happening to him. Stanley gets rolled up, mailed, and flown like a kite. He even gets to help catch two dangerous art thieves. He may be flat, but he's a hero. This is the very first Flat Stanley adventure, updated with crisp new art.

    This is the original 1964 version of Flat Stanley, illustrated by French artist Tomi Ungerer, and what fun it is. The adventure starts when Mr. and Mrs. Lambchop discover that last night, a bulletin b...

    I didn't enjoy this book as much as the Mexican Adventure I just read, but I was curious to find out more about how Stanley became flat! The plot was not so great but there were important messages alo...

    It should be noted that my review is for the original Flat Stanley with illustrations by Tomi Ungerer, not the revised (and much inferior) editions by Scott Nash. The original will always be superior....
