When Flat Stanley left St. Clement’s Elementary School in St. Bernard, Ohio on the 5th of November 2003, no one knew that by the time he finished his travels, the paper cut out would be travelling to each of the South Atlantic British Overseas Territories. That’s a trip of approximately 20,000 miles by air and by sea.
