Welcome to Stanley’s Store! Can Stanley help his friends find everything they need?

Stanley has fresh fruits and veggies to be unloaded, Myrtle needs help at the cheese counter, Shamus and Little Woo’s groceries must be rung up, and—oh no! Charlie just knocked over Stanley’s produce display. Even for an industrious hamster like Stanley, running a store is hard work!

Stanley’s Store invites young readers to explore grocery store processes, colors, and machines in a sweet, simple world. With bright illustrations, adorable characters, and a padded-cover format, William Bee’s Stanley series is perfect for readers transitioning from board books to picture books.

“Children will be able to easily point out squares, circles, and rectangles in the depictions of different grocery items, store fixtures, and character features. Describing each employee’s responsibility during a typical shopping day, this story shows how employees in an organization work as a team to enable it to function. A terrific toddler time choice with loads of appeal for Stanley fans and those new to the series. ” —School Library Journal

“A satisfying addition to the Stanley the Hamster series.” ―Booklist Online
