Flat Stanley is a storybook character. Stanley, in the book, gets flattened by a bulletin board and decides to use his new, thin, self to slide under doors and, better still, mail himself to friends in envelopes.
Long story short, Mrs. Damon's class at Pittston School sent me one which I was to take with me wherever I went to document things I did. Well, I lost Stanley. Just last week, when Mrs. Damon called in for a different reason, I confessed. She was wonderfully understanding. Still, I felt bad and asked her to keep me in mind the next time she did a Flat Stanley project and she assured me she would.
