Stanley Lambchop is an ordinary ten-year-old, until the bulletin board on the wall above his bed comes loose and falls right on top of him!  The next morning, Stanley wakes up flat!  Filled with infectious songs and non-stop adventure, Stanley – the ultimate exchange student – scours the globe for a solution to his unusual problem.  He’s stamped, posted and cancelled from Hollywood and France to Honolulu and beyond, all in an effort to become a three-dimensional boy once more.
