The popular kid who's as flat as a pancake -- and has become a travel ambassador for classrooms around the country -- returns in his second hilarious adventure!
When Stanley Lambchop gets hit with a ball while simultaneously banging his shoulder, his normal, round self turns suddenly board-like. Unfortunately, according to Dr. Dan, Stanley's been smacked in his OBP -- or Osteal Balance Point -- and there's no way of finding it again. Lucky for Stanley, though, his thin condition turns out to be an advantage when Ralph Jones, a college buddy of Mr. Lambchop, puts his body to use as a new spinnaker during a boating race, and a belligerent Emma Weeks needs rescuing from a department store building collapse. But even though Stanley thinks his flatness is set for good, a slap on the shoulder from Flash Tobin and a sudden jab from Emma's elbow restores his OBP, putting his physique back in shape.
With all of the laugh-out-loud humor readers found in Flat Stanley, this planar dude is light years from plain. Jeff Brown's hero will have audiences cheering for him again, while Scott Nash's cartoonish illustrations give him that extra dose of silliness. Stanley Lambchop might lack some physical depth, but he definitely makes up for it in wacky adventures. Matt Warner
