Description

A spooky but funny story about Jeff Brown's Flat Stanley - everyone's favourite flat boy - perfect for children learning to read.


Stanley and his brother Arthur are going to their school's Halloween party. They dress up in costumes and Stanley is particularly looking forward to the limbo competition. They're rather disappointed by the haunted house, though - it's really not very scary. But when they see a bully upsetting their friend Martin, they decide to teach him a lesson - by being very scary indeed!
