It's Only Stanley

By Jon Agee
Fans of Jon Klassen and Oliver Jeffers will love this mischievously funny read-aloud from award-winning author/illustrator Jon Agee
Mysterious noises keep waking up the Wimbledon family. "That's very odd," says Mr. Wimbledon each time, but when he returns from checking on the sounds, he's always reassuring: "It's only Stanley; he's fixing the oil tank." "It's only Stanley; he's clearing the bathtub drain."
But what Stanley the dog is actually doing while his oblivious family goes back to bed is deliciously absurd: he's turning the house into a rocket ship to zoom himself and his family to another planet for an alien encounter. This is a perfect rhyming read-aloud for fans of irreverent tales like"Click Clack Moo" and"I Want My Hat Back.""


    REVIEW QUOTES
Praise for "It's Only Stanley" * "Agee and his simple, droll watercolors return with a work that manages to be absurdist, alarming, and--just when you least expect it--poignant. . . . Very strange, and very, very wonderful."--"Booklist," starred review * "Agee appeals to connoisseurs of the absurd, and he shapes ridiculous developments into a tightly composed and satisfying picture book."--"Publishers Weekly," starred review "Fun--just plain fun."--"Kirkus" "Agee knows what his young readers want--plain silliness--and he delivers. Hilarious."--"School Library Journal"
