The Flat Stanley Project The Flat Stanley Project comes from a book called Flat Stanley, in which the main character, who has been flattened, has all sorts of adventures when his family sends him places through the mail. Teachers across America and in Canada have taken this idea to heart, starting their own Flat Stanley Projects, in which students make their own Flat Stanleys (or Flat Jessicas or other female names) and then mail them to friends and family. The adults who receive these new flat friends take the little guys or girls on all sorts of adventuresto work, to the zoo, on plane and boat trips. The range of destinations for Stanley is limited only by the creativity of the people he visits.
