Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Ever since young Stanley was flattened by that bulletin board, he's discovered that two dimensions are sometimes more advantageous than three. In this adventure, he airmails himself to Egypt to find an ancient treasure hidden deep inside a great pyramid. Once again, he slips into a dangerous assignment that even he might not be thin enough to wiggle out of.
School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—Pennypacker ably continues the adventures of Flat Stanley, originated by Jeff Brown, in this short chapter book. Having been flattened by a falling bulletin board, the half-an-inch-thick boy uses his unique physique to good advantage, mailing himself places, slipping under doors, and wriggling through thin cracks. In this installment, Stanley Lambchop receives a letter from Sir Abu Shenti Hawara, who offers him a chance to go to Egypt and assist on an important archaeological dig. He travels via airmail in an envelope provided by Hawara. Once there, Stanley befriends a girl named Amisi. Together, they thwart a group of thugs intent on thieving treasures from an ancient tomb. The narrative is filled with touches of lighthearted humor. The story stands on its own, and the exposition explaining Stanley's previous adventure foiling art thieves seems unnecessary. Large font and a generous proportion of sharp-angled cartoon drawings make this book a quick and easy read. Appended are a fact sheet on Egypt and a teaser chapter from the next installment in the series, certain to hook readers into coming back for more.—Madigan McGillicuddy, Los Angeles Public Library

    Egyptian History

    Sara Pennypacker returns in the second of Flat Stanley's Worldwide Adventures - this time he's making the trip on his own, as no mention of his family being involved is mentioned in the letter that Stanley receives one morning before breakfast. Within just a few minutes, Stanley is ready to go, folded up inside the envelope (once again thanks to his being flattened by a falling bulletin board one night). After a long journey, Stanley arrives in Egypt, ready to embark on his adventures while trying to help out in an archaeological project involving deceased pharaohs and tombs inside the pyramids, all important aspects of Egyptian history.

    This book reveals a great deal about Egyptian lifestyle and culture and is definitely a worthy read for children who are interested in history or who may be studying about Egypt!
