Stanley by Syd Hoff


Stanley by Syd Hoff

Stanley is no ordinary caveman. This makes the other cavemen so angry that they chase him away. But Stanley just goes on being different, and as the others soon see, different isn't such a bad idea after all. Stanley is a funny story with a timeless message. As Children's Book and Their Creators commented: Humorously demonstrates how one noncomformist can make a tremendous difference to his society. This Level 1 I Can Read classic by Syd Hoff, author of Danny and the Dinosaur, is perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences.
