Author and illustrator Jon Agee has been contributing to the world of children's literature for a long time, and his works like Milo's Hat Trick and The Incredible Painting of Felix Clousseau are loved for the playful story lines and detailed cartoon-style illustrations that bring them to life. Agee's newest book, It's Only Stanley, definitely keeps with what fans of his work expect.
The Wimbeldon family live in a big, old house with their dog, Stanley. One night, the family's sleep is interrupted over and over again by strange noises. When each noise is investigated, it always ends up being Stanley. A bump in the night is Stanley fixing a plumbing leak. A eerie clanking noise is only Stanley cooking in the kitchen. A mysterious creaking from the living room is only Stanley adjusting the television antennae. What is up with this industrious pup? The Wimbeldons find out at the end what Stanley has been up to this whole time, and it will make the reader smile. recommended age: all ages
