    • I think it was amazing because in the middle of the night, Stanley turned invisible. There was bad weather that night and Stanley was eating fruit next to the window. At the end of the story, Arthur, Stanley’s brother, had an idea. He gave Stanley fruit and turned on the sink and shower. Mrs. Lambchop got out skillet and a wooden spoon for thunder, Mr. Lambchop got out a flashlight for lightning, and Arthur made a whooshing sound for wind. Nothing happened at first, but then Mr. Lambchop said [...]

    • Another familiar Lambchop adventure, fascinating for young readersWho doesn't want to be invisible? My son loved the idea. We read a few of Stanley's other adventures a while ago, and he loved the sound of this one. It is also a new version illustrated with fresh and modern-looking drawings by Rob Biddulph, which brings the slightly old-fashioned story and Lambchop family a new relevance.In a plot reminiscent of the original, Stanley accidentally (and somewhat unrealistically!) is transformed ph [...]

    • Summary: The morning after a bad storm Stanley wakes up invisible. He doesn't know how it happened. He had to tie a string with a ballon on it around him so that people would know where he was.

His brother comes up with an idea to make him visible again and it works!!Evaluation: I like this book a lot. I know kids like it too because Stanley is invisible so t [...]

    • These books are so dorky and contrived with frightfully ridiculous, stilted dialogue. But I kind of like all that about them.

    • Stanley's story starts on a dark and stormy night, when he falls asleep after eating some fruit. The next morning his younger brother Arthur finds that Stanley has become invisible. The adventure and excitement for Stanley kick starts when a news reporter makes an appearance at school to cover the story. Stanley uses this phenomenon in a a productive and helpful manner: helping a young individual win a race; helping a very shy gentleman propose to his girlfriend; and aids his jealous brother in [...]

    • My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.spreadthewordnevada/Myself, I go out on the we [...]

    • Reading this one on the heels of Flat Stanley and Stanley and the Magic Lamp, I can say I need a Stanley break. My daughter likes Stanley. I have no problem with these books. This one is better than Flat Stanley in narrative, but it is not as good as Stanley and the Magic Lamp. I think maybe invisibility is more difficult to write well. I think the Stanley books are ideal for read-aloud time with younger children: older preschoolers or young school-age. I will revisit these books with my kids in [...]

    • These Flat Stanley books are really pretty cheesy, but they are cute and my son loves them. In this one, Stanley becomes invisible one night during a storm. The story follows Stanley through a couple adventures, including how he foils a bank robbery, and then his brother Arthur's great idea on how to get him to be visible again. Like I said, while really cheesy and obnoxious to me, my kids love them and enjoy them! They're fun early chapter books and for my older kids to read to my younger ones. [...]

    • My 6-year-old home-schooled granddaughter loves the Flat Stanley books. I think this book may have been her first exposure to the thought of someone being invisible. She loved the drawings (old version as a e-book) of Stanley's body shape beneath his bedcovers. These are simple fun books with imaginative simple adventures, short chapters, and repeating characters that go from book to book. I enjoyed reading them to my granddaughter.

    • After eating fruit during a storm, Stanley turns invisible. He uses his powers to bring a shy young couple together, help a boy ride a bike, and stop some bank robbers. As usual, Brown is terrific at writing from the kid’s point of view – the fantastic and magical is taken in stride, and the feats Stanley does are what a young child might wish of doing. The dry aplomb of the Lambchops is a source of wit which mostly goes over kids’ heads. It’s a fun book for them, even so.

    • Poor Stanley just can't catch a break. In Invisible Stanley, he has another round of adventure due to the mistake of eating fruit during poor weather. He again has to deal with crime fighting, too much attention, a jealous brother, and then growing sick of his predicament. But he does it with flare and my son loves to hear about it.

    • there was a rain storm and stanley ate fruit. the next morning he was invisible so they take him to the doctor. the doctor didn't know what to do so they put a balloon over his face so they can see him. so a tv guy ask him to be in a show to do amazing tricks. so the guy makes the frog fly with the help of stanley.

    • I liked reading this Flat Stanley book. I don't' know why, but I just like reading those types of books. My favorite part was when Stanley was sitting by the window eating some apples and raisins and there was a thunderstorm outside and in the book when you eat fruit in the storm you turn invisible. That is what happened to Stanley.

    • I started reading the Flat Stanley books when I was sent a Flat Stanley from a friend of mine's daughter. The books are cute and fun to read. Strange things happen to Stanley, but he always saves the day.

    • I thought it was amazing, crazy and wild adventure, and it was awesome. I thought it was pretty funny, and I liked Flat Stanley because they pumped him up and this one, bang boom crash! It was a storm!

    • This was a fun and quick book to read. Every child dreams of being invisible one day and all the things that they could do. Well this happens to Stanley and the story takes you through his adventures while being invisible.

    • The first one was definitely the best and the second book was ok. All the rest have been pretty pointless including this one. Also drat and stupid are used one each and I don't need that being said all over the house. Mediocre at best.

    • The fourth book in the adventures of flat Stanley Interesting book that my daughters seemed to enjoy Makes for an interesting project to draw flat likeness of yourself & mail it off to friends & family to see what other adventures are in store

    • These have been fun reading with my 7 year old. She follows along with me in the text, enough pictures to keep it interesting, a little bit of suspense or adventure as Stanley catches bank robbers. Fun.

    • Goofy, but safe. Funny quote: "Always a treat running into your family, George!" said Mr. Jones. "The older boy was flat once, I recall. You had him rolled up
