Flat Stanley, by Jeff Brown, is the story of a boy who is squashed flat but astonishingly, otherwise no worse for wear. As a result of his experience, he can be mailed in an envelope to his friends. Flat Stanley even has his own website.
Flat Stanley is currently staying with us having traveled from Scotland via Devon.
We hope to take Flat Stanley on some more adventures soon but yesterday, he went for a visit to Battersea Park.
The visit to the Park was for a particular reason that I hope to write about soon but in addition, we saw the preparations for the Jubilee celebrations with marquees and endless rows of portable loos. My children decided that it wasn't tasteful to take photos of the latter but I have never seen so many. Flat Stanley did have a look at the marquees.
Flat Stanley was able to see some of the nature in London Parks including the nests of both a coot and swan.
Sadly, Flat Stanley now needs some emergency surgery on his arm. I'm no surgeon but should be able to manage this with the help of the laminator. Hopefully, he should be well for his further adventures with us before travelling on.
