Recently a colleague of mine asked me to take a photo of him on a flight to Tallinn and then he busted out this piece of paper of a little kid that is all coloured in. And then I remembered. Flat Stanley. I loved that book when I was little.
Who is Flat Stanley?
Stanley Lambchop is flattened when a bulletin board falls on him. He survives and makes the best of his altered state, and soon he is sliding into rooms through the opening at the bottom of closed doors and being kind to his younger brother by playing as a kite for him. Stanley even helps catch some art museum thieves by posing as a painting on the wall! But one special advantage is that Flat Stanley can now visit his friends by being mailed in an envelope.
So I got my picture taken with Stanley in Estonia and am now in some kid’s Powerpoint presentation for school. How cute…
