Overview

Mysterious noises keep waking up the Wimbledon family. "That's very odd," says Mr. Wimbledon each time, but when he returns from checking on the sounds, he's always reassuring: "It's only Stanley; he's fixing the oil tank." "It's only Stanley; he's clearing the bathtub drain." But what Stanley the dog is actually doing while his oblivious family goes back to bed is deliciously absurd: he's preparing for an interplanetary trip! And guess who’s going along for the ride!

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for It's Only Stanley

• "Agee and his simple, droll watercolors return with a work that manages to be absurdist, alarming, and—just when you least expect it—poignant. . . . Very strange, and very, very wonderful."—Booklist, starred review

• "Agee appeals to connoisseurs of the absurd, and he shapes ridiculous developments into a tightly composed and satisfying picture book."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Fun—just plain fun."—Kirkus

"Agee knows what his young readers want—plain silliness—and he delivers. Hilarious."—School Library Journal
