Stanley’s thrown his party — and braved his wild ride. Now Stanley and his pals embark on an adventure that makes sea-dogs of them all!#It’s picnic time in the park — but not for Stanley. He knows he’s not supposed to beg, but his people are always eating. And Stanley is always hungry! After he’s told to “get,” Stanley wanders down by the river where he runs into Alice, Nutsy and Gassy Jack.#Soon their keen noses lead them to a delicious treat on a small boat with no people in sight. When the boat’s mooring comes loose, they float away with the current down the river, under a bridge and then out to sea! It’s a scary new world where the sky stretches in every direction and big waves crash. The dogs know that when you’re Outside, sooner or later you always come to a fence. When suddenly through the mist they see what looks like a very tall fence, they know they’ve come to the End of Outside! But what kind of fence is this?

AWARDS & REVIEWS

Reviews

"Super illustrations ..."

Vancouver Sun, 01/03/2008

"Linda Bailey’s endearing, if disobedient, dog is back ...This is a delightful addition to the ongoing adventures of a lovable, if goofy, cast of characters."

City Parent, 01/03/2008

"Bailey’s humor, sometimes subtle and other times overt, comes through on every page ... Slavin’s splendid acrylic paintings ... teem with detail and texture that give a 3-D effect ...Three “arfs”... for this sensory-rich adventure."

School Library Journal, 01/04/2008

"... Stanley’s waggish appeal will win over readers young or grown."

Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review, 01/02/2008

"... third in the rollicking series about a goofy dog whose addled antics make for first-class entertainment."

Quill & Quire, 01/02/2008
