Flat Stanley: Stanley’s Christmas Adventure – sent for review and giveaway

As you all know well, I’m dealing with a boy how doesn’t share my love of independent reading.  He’s definitely been getting better at trying to pick up a book himself lately and I thought he might like to try the Flat Stanley: Stanley’s Christmas Adventure book.  Written by Jeff Brown, this is a lovely chapter book for readers to enjoy during the festive season.

Flat Stanley: Stanley's Christmas Adventure

Flat Stanley: Stanley’s Christmas Adventure is our first introduction to Stanley Lambchop and his family.  In case you didn’t know, poor Stanley got flattened by bulletin board, hence the Flat Stanley nickname.  His younger brother, Arthur reinflates him, but that’s when the fun really began.

in Snow City all is not well, Father Christmas is not feeling happy and doesn’t think that people believe in the magic of Christmas any more.  In fact, he’s decided not to deliver presents this year at all.  His daughter, Sarah Christmas, wants to prove to him that people really do still believe in him and she sets off to find the boy who write Santa a letter some time before.  That boy is Flat Stanley.

Flat Stanley: Stanley's Christmas Adventure

Sarah finds out where Stanley and his family lives and when she does, she explains the situation to Stanley and Arthur.  She asks if Stanley can come to Snow City to talk to her father, otherwise Christmas will be cancelled.  So the Lambchop family get to ride on a sleigh and meet all of the reindeer as they are whisked off to Snow City to meet Father Christmas and the elves.

Can Stanley persuade Father Christmas that people really do believe in the real meaning of Christmas and save the day in time for Christmas Day? I don’t want to ruin the rest of the story for you, but it’s a lovely read, and one that we’ve enjoyed.  With illustrations by Rob Biddulph, Flat Stanley: Stanley’s Christmas Adventure is perfect for those 6-8 year olds enjoying independent reading.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. The jolly Christmas postman, I loved how interactive I was and I loved the normal one so the Christmas one was just that bit more special!

  2. It’s hard to beat Chris Van Allsburg’s, The Polar Express. A classic Christmas story with detailed illustrations. I love the book, especially the scene where the boy opens his gift to find the silver bell.

  3. The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry

    A beautiful short story about the personal sacrifices we are willing to make for the ones we love.

  4. The Jolly Christmas Postman – I love all the cute letters, postcards and other things in it, it feels so much more than just a book.

  5. It has to be The Grinch by Dr Seuss, we love the rhyme, the pictures but most of all the message behind it. Thanks for the chance

  6. twas the night before christmas because it takes me right back to my childhood when I see how excited the kids get reading it

  7. I love the book “moosletoe”…it shows that through the chaos of trying to create a perfect family Christmas, what is important is love and family
