Ever since Stanley was flattened by a bulletin board, there are places he can get to that no one else can. Stanley's a big fan of ninja movie star Oda Nobu so he sends him something even better than fan mail - Stanley himself! Soon Flat Stanley is in Japan, but when trouble surprises them, it will take a real hero to save the day.
And when Stanley receives a letter from an archaeologist, he travels by airmail to Egypt to help find an ancient treasure deep in the heart of a great pyramid. But what if even the flattest boy on earth can't wriggle out of this dark tomb?

"[A] classic, fun tale of a boy with a difference ... with its messages of acceptance, jealousy and good versus evil - in the modern world." (Kids Book Review)
Runner and mother of two from Hove, UK. Relies on good audiobooks to stop the kids from fighting in the car. Occasionally buys one for her.
Once they'd got over the initial interest of being flat, my two sons (aged 5 & 7) didn't seem all that bothered about this book. The stories are perhaps a little too predictable. Some laugh out loud funny bits, but these were few & far between.
They were however quite happy to listen to them, and did not end up fighting despite being stuck in heavy traffic.
