Flat Stanley is no stranger to the Manchester Acupuncture Studio. 

This weekend was our second visit with the popular children’s book character. If you are not familiar with the story of Flat Stanley, here is the summary.

Stanley was a regular guy until a bulletin board fell on him, thus making him flat. He discovers many advantages of being flat, including the ability to travel in envelopes. Now, school age children mail Flat Stanley to friends and family who take him on adventures all over the world.


In 2018, Stanley made his first appearance at MAS when Elizabeth’s husband, Eric brought him back from a trip to Chicago. Stanley went hiking, got a tour of the State House, and then he got a needle nap at the clinic before returning back to Tamar, Eric and Elizabeth’s niece. Tamar gave a presentation for her classmates on Stanley’s New Hampshire adventures.

Stanley dropped in this weekend a town in Central, Illinois, called Bourbonnaise. After getting acupuncture for travel fatigue, he made the most of the warm weather this weekend. Stanley went kayaking in Ballard Pond in Derry. He saw turtles sunning themselves on a log and swimming underwater. He saw geese and ducks, great blue herons, and lots of lily pads. Stanley even helped clean trash out of the pond.

Later, Stanley joined Elizabeth and Eric on a neighborhood walk with their friend, Jen. Stanley smelled the lilacs at their peak. He admired a succulent garden and then when he got tired he rested on a patch of Creeping Phlox.

Stanley is now on his way back to Bourbonnaise, Illinois. Eric and Elizabeth’s nephew, Orion, will share Stanley’s New Hampshire adventures with his classmates.
