Flat Stanley

Many elementary school students do Flat Stanley projects which involve sending a little paper man to different cities and having him photographed in different locations. (In the book about Flat Stanley he gets flattened by a bulletin board and uses his flattened state to his advantage by traveling the world via envelope.) My cousin's daughter in Mississippi is doing a Flat Stanley project for class and decided to send Mr. Stanley to London to visit me. I tried to show him a good time and took some pics of him around the city. He saw Big Ben, the London Eye, Westminster Abbey, and the Victoria and Albert Museum. At the V&A he visited the National Art Library and also saw some beautiful sculpture, stained glass, and silver and gold crosses. Then he went to Liberty department store to shop for London-themed Christmas ornaments and Topshop to shop for unicorn and kangaroo onesies. He also enjoyed riding on the London Underground and thought the red telephone booths around the city were pretty awesome.
