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!

First Sentence
Once upon a very long time ago, way before the beginning of today's sort of people, there was a magical kingdom in which everyone lived forever, and anyone of importance was a genie, mostly the friendly kind. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars TERRIFIC! 13 Jun 2000
By Carrie B. Reynoso - Published on
What a terrific book to read to your class! My 3rd grade class loved this book as we were beginning to read chapter books. We eventually read the next Jeff Brown book called Flat Stanley. Then we joined a group and mailed our Flat Stanleys to children and schools all over the world. This book is a must for your classroom library.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Fun 29 Oct 2003

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We began with Flat Stanley when reading chapter books to my young son, then we began reading the whole set of 'Stanley Books'. We have loved them.
The books are fun enough and interesting enough to keep the attention of a four year old over the course of several nights. There are a few pictures and they are charmingly illustrated.
In this book, the plot is centered around Stanely and a magic lamp. The story is fun and although a fantasy type book, easy for even young children to grasp.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mysterious Lamp 5 July 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on
I read a good book called Stanley and the Magic Lamp. Stanley finds a lamp and wishes to get answers for his homework. Then he gets an askit basket and puts his paper in and gets his answers. This book is very entertaining and funny. Read the book to see what happens when Arthur, Stanley's little brother, and Stanley make more wishes from the genie. See what happens when he starts wishing for bigger wishes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Would you like to fly or be famous? 6 Jan 2008
By J. Arena - Published on
Wow! It makes perfect sense to me that the author of this super entertaining adventure was a story editor and assistant film producer in Hollywood. As I was reading Stanley And The Magic Lamp, I kept thinking that it would make a really cute family film that every age would enjoy.

When Stanley Lambchop finds a magic lamp, he also finds a genie who can grant him wishes.

How would getting all your wishes granted change your life? Beyond anything you can imagine will all come to pass in Jeff Brown's wonderful book. This is a must-read for your imaginative child.

The charming illustrations by Scott Nash add to the fun of Stanley's adventure.

Loved it. What young person wouldn't love a story where there is a magic genie? They also learn the consequences of their wishes!
