Stanley's people go out a lot. Stanley is a good dog, but one night, while they're away, the temptation becomes too great and he sneaks up onto the couch. What a wonderful experience! Soon he's also blasting the music, dancing around the living room and raiding the fridge. Stanley's never had so much fun! But after a couple of weeks something is missing, and Stanley realises that partying alone has lost its thrill. Ages 3-7 AUTHOR: Linda Bailey is the author of over 18 books for children, including the Stevie Diamond Mysteries series, the Good Times Travel Agency series and Stanley's Party.

Slavin's polished paintings of Stanley's antics and Bailey's confident, breezy story add up to a triumphant cautionary tale that will leave both adults and kid laughing.--Kirkus Reviews
This is first-class entertainment all the way, with a last line - ?If you don't believe me, ask your dog? - that's cheekiness itself.--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
This is a funny, delightful book ... even if you're not a fan of real dogs, this book is a riot.--Quill & Quire Starred Review
This humorous story makes an ideal read-aloud. Dog lovers and party animals alike will howl with delight.--School Library Journal
