Flat Stanley

Have you heard of the children's book Flat Stanley.  It tells the story of a boy who is crushed by a bulleting board in his sleep and wakes up flat.  In his new flat state he is able to go places and do things that regular "round" people can't.  He has many adventures!

Franklin County Library has several of the Flat Stanley books.  Recently, an article on USA Today's website caught Lisa's eye.  It tells the story of an elementary student who wrote a letter to a soldier and asked that he carry a cutout of Flat Stanley with him and then return him with a chronicle of his exploits.  The story of Stanley's adventure with the soldier is extraordinary as is his return to the young student.  Read the full article here
