Horn Book Review

Written by John Greenhut. Flat Stanley continues his travels by visiting Texas. After promising to be prompt in meeting his mother at the Alamo, Stanley and three companions explore the area; they incur various adventures and arrive late at the rendezvous. Stanley fears a showdown with his mother, but the day is saved by the arrival of his friend, Calamity Jasper. Cartoonish drawings accompany the slight, mildly diverting story. (c) Copyright 2014.
