He goes back to the doctor, who tells him there has been flat people throughout history. He and his dad go sailing, and Stanley has to be the sail when the real sail rips.
Other kids think it is exciting to be flat, but Stanley just wants to be round and regular.
Stanley hears about a girl named Emma on the news — she got stuck under a building when it collapsed. She is in Stanley’s class at school. Stanley goes to the building and slips underneath the building to help save her. Even though she is kind of mean to him, he helps her get out, and he is a hero.
When they are getting their picture taken, she elbows him in the ribs and BAM! He gets round again.
I hope that bulletin board doesn’t fall on him again!
