Have you ever heard of Flat Stanley? Flat Stanley is a 1964 children’s book with an interesting storyline:
Stanley Lambchop and his younger brother Arthur are given a big bulletin board by their Dad for displaying pictures and posters. He hangs it on the wall over Stanley’s bed. During the night the board falls from the wall, flattening Stanley in his sleep. He survives and makes the best of his altered state, and soon he is entering locked rooms by sliding under the door, and playing with his younger brother by being used as a kite. One special advantage is that Flat Stanley can now visit his friends by being mailed in an envelope.
In 1995 a Canadian school teacher started the Flat Stanley Project, a letter-writing campaign for children. Flat Stanley easily travels worldwide in envelopes, sometimes returning with pictures, journals, and postcards from his adventures.
Bloggers love getting together at conferences and bringing “flat” friends who couldn’t make it. Deidra, Kristen, and I were determined that if our buddy Robin couldn’t attend Relevant, her flat counterpart would.
Flat Robin’s hair was always perfect. She never lost her perky smile or made an embarrassing faux pas. She reunited with old friends like Lisa, Shaun, and Amanda. Heck, she even got out and played in the snow.
Have you ever created a flat friend?
