Cool tools combine with friendship, kindness, and teamwork for Stanley’s youngest fans and future gearheads.
Stanley the hamster is helping Little Woo fix up his treehouse. They need to build a ladder, fix the roof, and hang some pictures. But Stanley also has a surprise―what could it be?
William Bee offers an early introduction to tools commonly found at home—everything from a drill, hammer, and nails to a sander and even a glue gun. Each tool is shown in action with bold colorful illustrations in the context of a sweet, simple story about a treehouse refresh, and the surprise ending will have readers exclaiming “Aww!” Vivid endpapers will delight young readers who want to explore and identify different tools.
The sturdy Stanley board book series, focused on early childhood education concepts, will appeal to toddlers, preschoolers, and fans of Lucy Cousins’ Maisy. It’s a great stepping-stone to William Bee’s beloved series of padded picture books featuring Stanley and his rodent friends as they explore jobs and careers, vehicles, daily routines, and what it means to be part of a community.
