Brown, Jeff Flat Stanley and the Very Big Cookie HarperCollins, 2015. $3.99 EARLY READER
Flat Stanley is very helpful in his town where he can use his
flatness to be of service. When Flat Stanley hears the local baker might go out
of business unless he can come up with an amazing new idea, Flat Stanley wants
to help. By accident Flat Stanley gives the Baker a big idea, and together they
create something that will help to keep the bakery open.
This is a cute story with bright illustrations. There isn’t
really much to the story other than Flat Stanley trying to be helpful. The bottom
line is that this series doesn’t receive checkouts in my library, the students
just aren’t interested. Could be different in your library.
