The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley is based on the children's book, Flat Stanley, written in 1964 by Jeff Brown.  The book inspired a cultural event called "The Flat Stanley Project," where kids create their own paper drawing of Stanley to send to others (resembling a penpal system).  Once that person receives the Stanley drawing, he or she writes a journal of all the places and activities Stanley visits, then sends him off with the journal to another person.  The project was meant to promote interpersonal relationships outside of school and literacy.
