Overview

One Ordinary Day, when he and his brother are watching TV, Stanley receives a phone call from the President of the United States. Why Stanley? Isn't he just an ordinary boy? The President of the United States has chosen Stanley Lambchop and his family to become the first humans to fly in the Star Scout, a new top-secret spaceship.

Stanley will meet the Queen of England, celebrate his birthday in outer space, and save a whole planet of aliens from danger. Oh, that Stanley!

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Stanley Lambchop takes a space-age trip to Tyrra in this galactic-sized adventure by Jeff Brown, illustrated by Scott Nash.

After the Lambchops get a call from the president of the United States, they're flown to Washington, D.C., where they're informed of their special mission to Tyrra. Soon the family has hopped aboard the Star Scout, and -- after some non-gravity antics -- they land on the planet. As it turns out, the Tyrrans are a race of mini-humans who need a helping hand with their foodless planet (due to a botched Super-Gro experiment), but thankfully, good old Stanley comes up with a plan to take all 684 Tyrrans back to Earth until their planet can become green again.

Stanley in Space will send his fans into orbit! With all the humor and hijinks of the other Stanley Lambchop books, this starry tale is a perfect pick-me-up and a silly read for any young reader's interplanetary journeys. Matt Warner

Children's Literature
Young Stanley Lambchop was first introduced in the 1960's, in the popular book, Flat Stanley. This installment of the Lambchop's adventures—one of six books in the series—finds Stanley again acting as hero in a far-flung, absurdly funny tale. A seemingly friendly message from extraterrestrials has been received by the President of the United States, so Stanley is asked to represent Earth on a mission to the planet Tyrra. The whole family decides to go, and after a long trip into space, they discover that the Tyrrans are in danger of extinction. Stanley comes up with a creative solution to their problems, and saves the day. Very well written, with cleverly imbedded grammatical lessons and vocabulary stretches. The humor is subtle enough for adults to enjoy, and, at the same time, plenty silly for young elementary readers of early chapter books. Cartoony illustrations are well done, and paced perfectly with the story. Originally published, with different illustrations, in Great Britain. 2003 (orig. 1990), HarperCollins,

    Great for beginning chapter book readers

    My son is almost 6 and he is just starting to read chapter books and this is a perfect series of books for him. It is just challenging enough yet still fun and easy for him to understand and enjoy. They are the perfect combination of fun and fantasy to keep his attention. He is so proud when he finishes a chapter book and this is great to encourage a lifetime of reading.

    JONATHAN STORY

    A boy flashed into view of the gargantuan battle fleet and began a hasty but destructive path of destruction to the central fortress where Mordred waited. In what was to be their final showdown, jonathan harnessed the power of the powerstones of avalon and began to float and glow with golden light. He dealt destructive blows to mordreds precious technology. Mordred fled to other part of the battle fortress. Jonathn followed. Suddenly jon found himself trapped by a high energy field. It robbed him of the powerstones and their energy. Then from the safetey of his control panel mordred reversed the polarity of the powerstones, releasing the dark power within. That energy was then fired in a powerful beam headed towards earth. Woth a roar the earth was ripped into seven continents which flated around the planets now visible core. From the aftermath of the destruction, a beast made of dark matter awoke from a centuries long slumber. However, fue to his proximity with the powerstones as the dark energy was released, jonathan underwent a new transformation. His muscular density increased. His teeth grew into fangs and his body became cpvered with lush heavy fur. Not his hands. His hands had no fur but were covered in pure black leathery skin. His features became animalistic.. his business with jonathan now concluded, mordred felt no remorse in ejectingjonathan and the spent powerstones out of the airlock and into the darkness of space. Jonathan found himself plummeting down towards scarlet letter where he collided with a collossal bang...
