In this book, Stanley and his family here that a scientist in Africa discovered a flat skull, so they go to Africa to see the skull and meet the scientist. Along the way they have adventures such as parachuting and canoeing. When they get there they realize that the skull is just a fish skull, but they are able to return home with it.
This book is a decent example of a fantasy book because of the fact that Stanley is flat. It is not realistic to have a flat human being, so this is an impossible situation. Because of Stanley being flat, he is also able to do things other humans can't, such as use himself as a parachute or as an oar. Other than the fact that Stanley is flat, the other aspects of the book are all realistic- the setting and the other characters.

This Flat Stanley adventure takes Stanley, his father and brother to Africa in search of a reported flat scull that may lead to understanding of why Stanley has become flat. In the process the three experience the African continent and the reader becomes introduced to the special features of the land and it's ecosystem. Appropriate for 1st graders, this story includes great adventure and in the end everyone agrees that Flat Stanley is a stand out guy. ( )
