I recommend this book for grades 2-4 because it has lots of details. For example, when Stanley was looking for the ingredient had to go through a bunch of chefs who were also looking for the same ingredient. He was taken by a chef who was looking for this same ingredient for 9 years! Flat Stanley dove off a pyramid in search of the ingredient. Next, he swims through a cave and when he reaches the end, he notices a tiny little house. Could this be where the ingredient is? Read the book to find out.
In my opinion, I rate this book *** stars because itís silly and adventurous like when Flat Stanley was accidentally being used as a pinata! He was hanging from to tree branch and the kids at a party were swinging at him with a bat! I couldn't put the book down towards the end when the chefs search Abuela's house for the ingredient. This book is full of funny parts.
