Review by School Library Journal Review
K-Gr 2-This early reader continues the adventures of a character originally created by Jeff Brown. Stanley Lambchop was "flat ever since a bulletin board fell on him." His younger brother convinces the reluctant boy to be part of their school's show-and-tell, as Stanley's wiggling ears (not his flatness) are seen as an entertaining novelty. A comedy of errors ensues involving other students' show-and-tell highlights: Sophie's Squeakers the Mouse, Manny's grandpa's false teeth, and Miss Plum's new engagement ring disappear quickly within the building walls, but Stanley rescues them because of his flattened abilities as he goes in and out of cracks "like a boy-sized strip of taffy." Quick action in an easy-to-read format, frequent dialogue for developing readers, generous white space, and cartoon images come together as brother supports brother in a school adventure. A general purchase for Flat Stanley fans.-Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TX (c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
