    Thanks Briatollah!
    I’ve read a lot of children’s books…. cos I like them, ok, you guys?….
    but I’d never heard of Flat Stanley.


    Then all I had to do was google Subway to see whether they served flatbread….
    they do….


    You can learn so much trying to figure out Brevity! LOL


    Now…. why does Stanley stand on a block in his pictures?

    I’ve no idea who or what Flat Stanley is or was but I’m guessing, from the drawing, Susan that it’s some form of two dimensional display item that requires a weighted base to support it.

    prof — no, I’d already googled it, and it’s a children’s book series.


    That’s why I said what I did…
    but I didn’t read one of the books…. just read about them and saw some illustrations.


    After he got flattened, perhaps he needed a base to stand up….
    and maybe someone familiar with the books, like Briatollah, knows the answer.

    Don’t go out of your way, Susan. The characterizations are a bit one-dimensional.

    He must be a Brit living in an apartment.

    (Over here they’re called flats.)

    Reading comments is entertaining and informative here today. I first thought it was odd he is a ‘K’ and then maybe a flat pan-ninny if I were to word play an observation. Thanks all!

    He had a relationship with the Pillsbury Dough Boy that was well rounded.

    @Number Six
    “Flats” makes more sense. Why do we call them apartments, when they are all stuck together?
    Do Flats have just one floor, as opposed to a two story, like some of our condos?

    Flat Stanley is a kids book. In it he gets flatened and then his family mails him on trips. He’s standing on the box he was packaged in.
