Stanleys School
Stanley’s School

Everyone’s favorite hardworking hamster is back, and this time he’s a teacher! Stanley’s School sees the return of the beloved cast of familiar characters (along with some new friends) for William Bee’s seventh title in the fun-filled picture book series.

Readers will love the vibrant colors, dynamic illustrations, and engaging story as Stanley and the class explore everyday activities at school. Stanley and Hattie have a busy day planned for Little Woo, Sophie, and Benjamin as they enjoy story time, painting, and playing pretend. Young readers will likely recognize some of their own favorite preschool classroom activities. From the moment Hattie rings the morning bell until the students head home on the blue school bus, Stanley’s School highlights the true excitement and fun of learning. Fans of Stanley will also be familiar with his regular nighttime routine of supper, bath, and bed, and get to continue saying “Goodnight” to their favorite hamster.

“Order, balance, and contentment seem fundamental to the charm of the amiable series for young children…. A pleasing addition to this popular series.” —Booklist

“Stanley the hamster welcomes a cast of preschool rodents to his school as they enjoy a day of fun and learning together…. Bee isn’t afraid to break gender stereotypes… Fans of the gentle hamster will want to know: What occupation will Stanley tackle next?” —Kirkus Reviews
