Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Flat Stanley finds himself being mailed to China to help out a Chinese acrobat group in this book in the "Flat Stanley's Worldwide Adventures" series. When Yang, one of the acrobats, has an accident and cannot perform, he decides that Stanley's flexibility will help Stanley to fill in for him. When they get to China, Yang and his twin sister, Yin, introduce Stanley to some of China's cultural traditions. Stanley learns that the names Yin and Yang are not just their names, but that they are words that describe the sacred balance of nature. He practices learning to fly by first climbing up the face of Mount Huashan. Another practice takes him to the top of the Great Wall of China. When he arrives in Beijing, it is just in time to celebrate the Chinese New Year. He even gets to go to the zoo where he sees Manchurian tigers and giant pandas. An unfortunate accident happens when Stanley crawls under the fence and the panda strikes him. Stanley receives Chinese acupuncture and is still able to have a great performance. There are various black and white illustrations throughout the book. Followers of Stanley's escapades will enjoy the antics while learning about China. The book is appropriate for readers who are beginning to read chapter books. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
