One by one every member of the Wimbledon family is awakened during the night by a strange noise or smell in the house, and every time Walter, the father, goes to investigate, he returns to report, 揑t抯 only Stanley.

Wendy looked around and said, 慦ell, what on earth was that?! 慖抣l go and look, said Walter, 慉nd I抣l be back very soon. 慖t抯 only Stanley, Walter said. 慦e抮e going to the 枓 Stanley, it turns out, is not only a mechanical genius, but he抯 in love with a pink poodle on the moon. Jon Agee抯 absurd and delightful picture book is full of visual clues and foreshadowing. Repeated readings guaranteed.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
