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,

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.
