Stanley is an imaginative and creative little boy who loves to make simple drawings of his favorite animals. His parents and his older brother can't see or hear the conversations he has with his talking pet goldfish, Dennis. As Stanley's closest adviser, Dennis serves as a guide who shows Stanley the life of animals through his "Big Book of Everything". Written by
All my life I have been an animal lover, not just for camping, zoos, and hanging out with my various pets, but also learning about all kinds of different creatures, whether from books, shows like The Jeff Corwin Experience and The Most Extreme, and Stanley. The title refers to the show's protagonist, a sweet intelligent young boy with a thirst for facts. He's aided by Dennis the fish, Harry the dog, and Elsie the cat when he travels into the "great big book of everything" in order to solve problems and find an animal to help and learn about. For example, in one episode Stanley has a friend over and the friend is being bossy. Stanley's mom calls his friend a "queen bee", so Stanley and his friend journey into the hive. In another episode, Stanley's dad is picking him up from school and he notices that many of his classmates are being picked up by their moms. Feeling like an outcast, Stanley goes into the great big book of everything after learning about seahorse dads from Dennis. One thing that sticks out to me and that I've always remembered is the song sung by Harry and Elsie to open the great big book of everything. I don't have kids but if I do hopefully they'll enjoy Stanley as much as I did.
