Flat Stanley at Elland and Rastrick Libraries

Posted on Updated on

Stanley Lambchop is just a normal healthy boy, but ever since a large notice board fell on him, he’s been only half an inch thick. But amazing things can happen to you when you are flat! Enjoy the magical and brilliantly funny adventures of Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. You will make your own Flat Stanley and Airmail envelope.

This activity is suitable for children aged 5-8.
