Tabby and Stanley

I met Flat Stanley when I was in first grade. Instead of sending him away to a friend, he got to spend Spring Break with me and my family. When I met him we spent all 9 days of spring break together.

A Very Touching Note

Dear Mr. Hubert:

I have to tell you how sweet my little 10 year old Douglas is.  A couple of years ago, he was given the project of making Flat Stanley and sending him on his journeys.

Well, Douglas chose his great aunt Pam to be Stanley’s host although he didn’t see her very […]
