Chapter 1 The Big Bulletin Board Breakfast was ready. Mrs. Lambshop wanted to wake the boys up. Suddenly her young son Author screamed. Mr. and Mrs. Lambchop hurried to the boys' bedroom where they found Stanley and Author. Stanley was under a bulletin board which Mr. Lambchop bought to pin their pictures on. Stanley was flat.
After breakfast they went to see the doctor. Mr. Dan examined Stanley and found nothing worry about. Stanley felt well. So, Mr.Lambchop, Mrs. Lambchop and their sons went to the tailor and got measurements. Stanley was thin and he needed new clothes.
Stanley’s Measurements 4 feet tall = 122 cm tall 1 foot wide = 30 cm ½ inch thick = 1,3 cm
Stanley enjoyed being flat. He could go in and out of the rooms when they were closed. Stanley found it helpful. His parents said that it was silly but they were proud of him. One afternoon Mrs. Lambchop took Stanley for a walk. Suddenly her ring slipped from the finger and fell through the bars into the shaft. Mrs. Lambchop started to cry. Stanley had an idea. He got laces from his shoes and extra lace from his pocket and tied them.
Then he gave one end to his mother and the other one he tied to his belt. Mrs. Lambchop lowered him. Two policemen stared at her and laughed. "Are you playing with your yo-yo?" At that moment Stanley asked her to raise him. The policemen apologized because they were hasty.
One day Stanley got a letter from his friend Antony Jeffrey. He lived in California. Stanley wanted to visit his friend. Mr. Lambchop bought an envelope and Stanley slid in it. There was room in the envelope and Mrs. Lambchop put an egg-salad sandwich and a toothbrush case full of milk. Stanley spent great time in California. Antony put Stanley in a new envelope and wrote "Valuable" and "Fragile" and "This End Up" on both sides. Stanley came home safe. He was happy.
One day Stanley opened the door and saw Mr. Dart who was standing at the elevator. Every day Mr. Dart was cheerful but that day he was gloomy. Stanley asked him what happened with him and Mr. Dart told him what had happened. Sneak thieves went to the museum and stole his picture. “Today I think they will come to the museum and take the most important and expensive picture but the guards can’t catch them.” Stanley went to his mother and took permission. So Stanley and Mr. Dart went to the museum and Stanley wanted to put on his disguise, but Mr. Dart brought his shepherdess disguise and put on this disguise on Stanley. Stanley looked like a girl. Mr. Dart put some spikes on the wall and Stanley could be in the picture all the time. Stanley really looked like a shepherdess. So Mr. Dart left the museum and Stanley stayed.
At night he heard noises and saw yellow light of a torch. The thieves were there. They had a secret door in the floor of the hall. One thief looked at Stanley and said: “The shepherdess must smile, but this shepherdess doesn’t, she looks strange.” Stanley smiled and the other thief said that the shepherdess looked friendly, like a girl. Stanley felt disgusted. When the thieves took the picture he shouted: “Police! Police!” The thieves were so scared that they couldn’t move. The police came and put on the hand-cuffs on the thieves. That day Flat Stanley was in the newspapers. He became famous.
