Stanley is a boy who certainly handles the unexpected. In the first book of this four-book collection, FLAT STANLEY, Stanley is suddenly flattened when a bulletin board lands on him. His worried parents take him to the doctor who says everything is fine. Instead of Stanley being discouraged by his situation, he discovers some perks that come with being flat. He's able to fly like a kite, go to California in an envelope, and even help catch thieves. However, being flat does get old. Luckily, Stanley's brother, Arthur, is able to help him out.

Stanley's life continues to be exciting, even as a round person again. In STANLEY IN SPACE, the President of the United States contacts Stanley and asks for Stanley's family to go into outer space. The Lambchop family travels to the planet Tyrra and meets the Tyrrans, who are very small indeed. The Tyrrans are having problems, but Stanley and his family know just how to help this distant civilization.

In INVISIBLE STANLEY, eating fruit during a storm proves to be just the combination to turn Stanley invisible. He's been flat, he's been to outer space, but invisible? That creates all new kinds of problems. And advantages. Stanley is able to help a stranger ride a bike, help his brother perform magic tricks, and help the police once again. However, when Stanley is tired of not being seen, he is lucky to have his brother help him out again.

When Stanley gets flat once more in STANLEY FLAT AGAIN, Arthur is not able to unflatten him. Stanley has entirely new sets of adventures his second time around as a flat boy. His flat body makes for a perfect sail and helps Mr. Jones to win a boat race. But when a little girl is trapped in the rubble of a collapsed building, Stanley, with his flat and flexible body seems to be the only hope for her rescue. Will Stanley be able to get to the girl? Will he be able to get her out without causing the building to collapse further?

Join Stanley and his family in their amazing adventures. Laugh along with Stanley as he enjoys the advantages of his differences rather than allowing them to limit him. Cheer for his courage as he bravely helps others. Imagine all of the things you could do if you were flat. Or invisible. Or in outer space. There are so many possibilities... ( )

This book is about a boy who wakes up one morning and relizes he is smaller than his baby brother. And he thought well this is not a good thing at all. But one day there was a shooting star and Stanley wished that he could be as tall as he was. Then the next morning he relized that Stanley wasn't small any more he was as flat as a pancake and his parents did not know what to say when they saw him because he was litteraly as flat as a pancake. After a week of being flat Stanleys' parents brought him to the doctor and the doctor said that after they gave him a shot he should be as good as knew.

This is a good example of fantasy. This story is believable but there is no way that a boy could be squished flat by a bulletin board and go on various adventures. The main character Stanley is a round dynamic character. We know a lot about Stanley by seeing how he responds to different situations and through his dialouge with others. He learns to embrace his flat body, but through the book we learn that he really wishes that he was normal again. In the end he changes back to normal by pumping him up with air. I would use this in an intermediate classroom. There are a few pencil drawings used throughout the book.
