Flat Stanley

Written by Jeff Brown • Illustrated by Steve Bjorkman

The bulletin board fell on Stanley and then Stanley got flat. Stanley helped his mom get her favorite ring out of the sewer. Stanley let his brother Arthur fly him like a kite. Stanley caught the sneak thieves in the famous art museum and got an award. Stanley hated being flat. Arthur blew him up with a tire pump. Then Stanley wasn?t flat anymore.

I like Stanley the best. I like Stanley the best because he had to dress up like a shepherdess and caught the sneak thieves. I wish I was Stanley because Stanley thinks it?s fun to be flat. If I were flat I?d let my brothers fly me like a kite. This story reminds me of my brother. He teased me because he had to kneel and I didn?t. Stanley got teased because he was flat.

I recommend this story because it?s a really good book! I think 2nd-5th graders could read this book.
