More About the Author

Jeff Brown worked on the editorial staffs of The New Yorker, The Saturday Evening Post, Life, and Esquire magazines. He was inspired to write the original Flat Stanley story by a bedtime conversation he had with his two sons. The book, published in 1964 saw a perfectly normal boy, Stanley Lambchop flattened by his noticeboard - it left him happy and healthy, but only one-a-half inches thick, opening the door to a new life of adventures! He is soon sliding under doors, flying like a kite in the sky and even posted through the mail!

Since then Flat Stanley's classic adventures have been entertaining children for over 45 years and have sold several million copies worldwide. Jeff's other Flat Stanley books are Stanley and the Magic Lamp, Invisible Stanley, Stanley's Christmas Adventure, Stanley in Space, and Stanley, Flat Again! The original Flat Stanley is also available as a picture book.

Jeff Brown died in December 2003 aged 77.

As well as being a publishing phenomenon Flat Stanley is also a hugely successful schools project. Children from across the globe create and send paper Stanleys to other schools who host his visit and return him with a diary of what he has been up to and photos of his trip. In the ten years since the project has been running, he has also been 'hosted' by celebrities, politicians and sports stars. Some of his favourite hosts, pictured here include President Barack Obama, Muhammed Ali, Buzz Aldrin and Colin Farrell. He has also attended the Oscars with Clint Eastwood, travelled up Mount Everest and into space!

A cute little book 27 Mar 2007
By apoem - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Our family loved reading the Flat Stanley series by Jeff Brown. Because of that we ordered this book. It was about the same family. We didn't enjoy this book near as much as the Flat Stanley books. This one was maybe an earlier book in the group and was not near as cute or fast moving. If you have read all of the other Jeff Brown books then you might consider buying this one. Otherwise, there are other better written books by Jeff Brown worth reading.
