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. Ho...more

I thought this book was fun to read. It was also fun to laugh at some of the pictures. I also noticed how much detail he put to the pictures and how he phrased it. I also liked how it taught you how you can always be helpful for everything even if you are flag like Stanley.
The original Flat Stanley was a fun read with the kids. They were amused by Stanley's adventures and I had fun reading it to them. However, the other books didn't hold our attention (neither the kids' nor mine) as well. We listened to some of them on tape, and then read the last one, Stanley, Flat Again. They just seemed a bit more contrived and forced. Probably a one-time read for us, but the kids might enjoy them again when they can read the books themselves.
We read this entire collection at bedtime with my kids. I remember liking the first book as a child, but re-reading it, and the others in the series was actually a let-down. The plots were odd and I didn't come to love the characters at all. A good, traditional chapter book, however, that my kids enjoyed well-enough.
While I enjoyed the original Flat Stanley story, I found the rest of them to be rather lame. The entertainment factor seems pretty low to me. The stories are a bit flat, pun unabashedly intended.
It's for students. I learned about it from them. I loved the concept. He likes his predicaments, because they enable him to have adventures inexpensively and safely...I'm all for that!
A short story of the miss adventures of a little boy who is flattened and what he can do with the powers and abilities open to him.
Zach thought these books were hilarious as Stanley dealt with the different problems his flat, invisible, gigantic, etc. body faced.
Cute stories.... but the narrator reads a little too fast for my taste. I'm not sure younger children can follow the entire story.

I like the first the best, but I always like a series to help me keep a book in the kids' hands!
My boys and I cheered as soon as we heard the voice and realized it was Daniel Pinkwater! Yay!
I read this book back in3rd grade, but do not remember the summary.
We love reading the Flat Stanley books at our house.

Jeff Brown had worked in Hollywood and as an editor and writer in New York before creating Flat Stanley, a hero for the youngest readers whose adventures, with illustrations by Tomi Ungerer, were first published in 1964. Flat Stanley became the star of a series of perpetually popular books. The last, "Stanley, Flat Again!," was published the year he died. All together, Stanley's tales have sold ne...more
