Brown, Jeff.
Flat Stanley's Worldwide Adventures #5: The Amazing Mexican Secret.
August 2010.
Review copy provided courtesy of publisher.

In this fifth worldwide adventure, Stanley is mailed off to Mexico in the hopes of obtaining the secret spice combination used to make the most delicious huevos rancheros, a Spanish egg dish served with tortillas. Of course, in order for this to be considered a worldwide adventure, you know something's got to stand in Stanley's way - a band of spies, attempting to get their hands on the secret spice combination, as well! However, as we all know, of course Stanley makes out on top!

Learning/Reading Activity:
  • Children will learn a great deal about Mexico in this adventure, so why not tie it in with a thematic unit on Mexico?
