As far as I can tell, Stanley was just called Stanley until one day a bulletin board fell on him, at which time he was not injured, just flattened. And since then, he has been accompanying first graders around the world on adventures - or just trips to the pizza store.
Either way, we recently had the honor of having Flat Stanley spend the week with us. Flat Stanley's twin, Stanley (the other Flat Stanley that my six year old colored) accompanied my mom on her trip to Israel a few weeks ago. Fun for my mom, that's for sure.
Here are some highlights of Flat Stanley's adventures with the family.
