The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley Jr., Stanley Lambchop is your
ordinary, everyday, run-of-the-mill ten-year-old: normal mom and dad, normal
little brother, normal life. That's just the problem...for Stanley, life is
too normal. He wants to travel the world, do something amazing, something no
one's ever seen before. Careful what you wish for, Stanley! Whether he's
thwarting a robbery at the Louvre Museum in Paris, or 'hanging ten' off the
coast of Hawaii, Stanley is closing in on his goal of being a
three-dimensional boy once more.
