Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stanley Lambchop is just a normal, healthy boy. True, there was that business about the bulletin board falling on him. But boys will have accidents, and Stanley is just like any other boy.

Even if he is only half an inch thick.

A handicap? Don't be silly!

Convenient? Most certainly. Why, Stanley's father never worries about losing him in crowds; he just rolls Stanley up and carries him under his arm. And economical! How about the time his parents mailed him to California to spend his holiday there?

Does he have fun? Well, which is more fun-flying a kite or being one?

What's that you say? Can a flat boy make a significant contribution to society? Now look-that's the climax. You'd better read the book.

It's uplifting.

And side-splitting. So are the pictures.

Synopsis:

A flat boy can do almost anything!

Stanley Lambchop is an ordinary boy. At least he was, until the night his bulletin board fell off the wall and flattened him. All of a sudden, Stanley can slide under doors, mail himself across the country in an envelope, and fly like a kite!

But flatness has its serious side, too. Sneak thieves have been stealing paintings from the Famous Museum of Art, and Stanley knows he's the only one who can stop them. Will the robbers discover Stanley's plan before he foils theirs?

Synopsis:

Meet Stanley Lambchop.

He's an ordinary boy with an extraordinary problem.

He's four feet tall, about a foot wide . . . oh, and half an inch thick.

At first being flat is fine.

It's fun going in and out of rooms simply by sliding under the door.

And it's exciting being mailed to your friends in California for a visit.

But it's not always easy being different, and soon Stanley wishes he could be just like everybody else.

Will he ever be normal again?
