These four adventures of a certain Stanley Lambchop; his younger brother, Arthur; and their parents are certainly unique. One evening his bulletin board falls on Stanley as he's sleeping and lies on him all night. When he awakes in the morning, he finds himself to be only one inch thick. In these stories Stanley accomplishes such feats as becoming a kite and catching a couple of art thieves by posing in a painting. These stories are all quite delightful, almost quaint. Mrs. Lambchop, in particular, is winsomely prissy: "Remember, 'hay' is for horses." Daniel Pinkwater's performance is well suited to this work. His delivery is precise, deliberate, and understated.
