Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
Even though Stanley Lambchop is different from other children, he is generally happy to be four feet tall, a half inch thick and one foot wide. Stanley is very excited because he and his little brother, Arthur are headed to his school's Halloween party. Arthur is dressed as a monster and Stanley is a blueberry pancake. Arthur and Mrs. Lambchop get into the family car while Mr. Lambchop ties Stanley onto a rack on the roof of the car. After going through the haunted house, the boys discover Martin, their neighbor, crying outside the gym. A much bigger boy has taken Martin's giant candy corn prize. Cleverly, Stanley comes up with a plan to frighten the older boy so that they can retrieve the candy for Martin. He quickly sheds his costume and climbs inside Arthur's monster costume and they are transformed into a two-headed monster. Arthur demands that the bully return the candy corn. Of course the bully does not believe that Stanley's head is real until he blinks and talks. The bully then runs screaming out the door of the gym. The multi-colored, cartoon-like illustrations are a good match for the story. Readers should be especially satisfied when they see the bully's face transformed from a scowl to fright. Youngsters just learning to read independently will enjoy this title from the "I Can Read" series. Purchase the hardcover edition, as it is certain to be in demand. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
