Flat Stanley and his family are going to the school Halloween party! Flat Stanley couldn’t be anymore excited! He is excited for the limbo contest, the haunted house, the candy and of course the costumes! When a bully picks on a friend, Stanley and his brother step into help. Will they be too scary??


“Flat Stanley’s little brother was flying him. Stanley is flat because a board fell on him. He likes to be flat. He is good at it. They went to a haunted house. It was not scary. Arthur was a dragon. Stanley was a pancake! They tied him up to the top of the car. That’s weird! At the haunted house their neighbor was sitting by it, poor neighbor, he was sad. A bully took his candy corn. It was big and huge! Flat Stanley and Arthur helped him get his candy corn back. They scared the bully. Their mom said it was too scary and hugged them.”

“I liked it. The best part was when they got the huge candy back from the mean boy. I would want to read it to my friends, if they read the words.”


“Flat Stanley and the Haunted House” has it all! It’s a fun story using Flat Stanley; a common education took for elementary students. Flat Stanley and his family are brought to life and are sharing Halloween with young readers. The Halloween is safe and fun. It is scary but not too scary. When the boys are given the opportunity to help a friend, they do so without violence. I really enjoyed every aspect of this book. The level of reading is great for those learning to read with help. It is not too far above the level of younger kids who may not know how to read yet. This gives the book edge. It makes the book suitable for kids ages 4 – 8. It can be read to your child, read with your child or the child can read all on his or her own. I would highly recommend this book!
