Flat Stanley arrived in Cameroon last week and has had a busy week visiting around Yaoundé. It took him two months to make the voyage from Dominca.
For those of you not familiar with Flat Stanley it is a 1964 children’s book written by Jeff Brown. Stanley Lambchop is given a big bulletin board by his Dad for displaying pictures and posters. Stanley hangs it on the wall over his bed. During the night the board falls from the wall, flattening Stanley in his sleep. He survives and is now as flat as a piece of paper. Flat Stanley can now visit his friends by being mailed in an envelope. There are even iphone apps for tacking him around the world.
Below are a few of the adventures that Stanley was able to have in Yaoundé.
