Amazing things start happening to him. He even gets to help catch two dangerous art thieves. He might be flat, but he's a hero! Stanley gets rolled up, mailed, and flown like a kite.
Poor Stanley. He's a perfectly normal boy until a single morning he wakes up flat. Svelte Stanley folds comfortably into a brown paper envelope. After his parents peel the incriminating bulletin board off of him, Stanley must adjust to life as a pancake. There's even room left more than in there for an egg-salad sandwich. Sliding under closed doors is fun, and it's gratifying to be of use to his mother when she drops her ring by way of a narrow metal grating. The case seems hopeless--until our two-dimensional hero saves the day. Here is 1 boy who doesn't let his profile-challenged body stop him from living life fully--that is, until his brother finds a approach to help him become properly rounded once more. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter Expensive plane fare to California? No dilemma. Jeff Brown's matter-of-fact tone and Tomi Ungerer's witty and engaging drawings tickle the funny bone, creating this 1964 classic a perennial favorite. He is really a boy who takes this kind of factor in stride, though, and soon he's enjoying the advantages of squashedness. But Stanley's true moment of glory comes when a gang of thieves begins stealing paintings from the Famous Museum of Art.
