    My favourite bits were Stanley getting the ring back for his mum and catching the robbers in the museum! Being flat is a funny idea but he does really clever things.

    Would you like to be flat?There might be great things but other things that might not go to plan.When Stanly gets flattened by a picture board things can really change.

  14. Frances Hartland says:

    I didn’t really like this book because the art thieves scared me. I think his brother was jealous because Flat Stanley could do lots of fun things, like become a kite.

  15. kruh says:

    This book is great and I love it.I think it’s funny especially when Arthur gets envious and tries to make himself flat under a pile of books.

    When Stanley gets flattened by a large bulletin board he goes on all sorts of adventures and even gets posted!I really enjoyed reading this book but I didn’t find it really exciting

    When Stanley is flattened by a picture falling down from above his bed, he finds many advantages in being flat. I like the story when in the picture gallery he pretends to be a shepherd and discovers a pair of robbers. This book explains the good and bad things about being different. I would recommend this book to children between the ages of 4-8.

    An absolute favourite book of mine – imagine my delight when this was the book I was asked to teach on my first day of supply teaching in Australia last year!? The idea of a boy being flattened by his noticeboard and having to live a 2d creates such funny situations and dilemmas for the characters. And the crime-fighting ending to the book is perfect!

  19. llincoln says:

    I liked this book because when Stanley gets flattened he can do amazing things like slide under doors and fit in envelopes. In this book Stanley uses his flatness to do helpful things as well like solving crimes and saving people.

  21. krian says:

    It was funny when Stanley was flat and I liked when the Police thought his Mum was cuckoo when she was looking for her ring.

  22. swood says:

    Once Stanley gets flattened, he can do all sorts of amazing things!

  23. foscar says:

    The beginning was a bit scary when he got flattened but I liked the end a lot when his brother Arthur blew him up.

  24. hbigueyapua says:

    I think it is funny because Stanley gets flat in a envelope.

  25. djaiden says:

    This wasn’t my favorite book but it was ok. I wish I was flat so I can be sent to Australia in an envelope to see my cousins.

  26. aroberts says:

    I liked it when he was flat and when he was pumped up again. I can remember at the beginning when he got squashed by the board. I liked it when Flat Stanley could go under the doors.

  27. eroberts says:

    Flat Stanley is a really cool and funny character. He does lots and lots of clever things. I like this book a lot because he hides in a painting.

  28. rhenry says:

    I give Flat Stanley three stars. I like when he gets flattened because I wish I could go under doors then I wouldn’t need to open them. And I liked when he was a kite. I would like to read another Flat Stanley book.
