"A triumph of make-believe fun. Stanley Lambchop wakes up to discover that he has been flattened to the width of one-half inch -- nothing to worry the doctor, and often a great convenience as a series of marvelous adventures proves."-- "H." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The American setting and slightly old-fashioned era don’t matter the slightest - my four-year-old had wide open eyes as soon as Stanley is squeezed flat by his noticeboard. He loved Stanley’s adventures helping his family, trying to stop his brother from feeling jealous, and attempting to foil two art thieves with a cunning plan.
A classic story for children, I never read the others in the series, but have ordered them now!
This is an easy read of two bedtime’s-worth of time for a parent, and despite a few moments of parental hoity-toity (“hay is for horses, Arthur!”) the language is accessible for young children and not too tricky for those reading by themselves.
It is arranged as one long story though (chapters or at least gaps between time periods would be useful for choosing places to break), but I found it easy enough to find appropriate places to put a bookmark in.
A great story about brothers, family, being different, and having imaginative adventures!
