Chapter the First: In which our Hero, Flat Stanley, visits Montreal
The nice thing about being a dude who's totally flat is that instead of buying a pricey plane ticket, you just get someone to mail you to wherever you want to visit.
That's how a purple-faced chap named Flat Stanley, who normally lives in St. François-Xavier, MB, ended up chez wolfboy for a week, to see the sights and hear the sounds of Montreal. To sample the wine, the culture, the beer, and the women.
To see how people live in other parts of the world. To hear the strange dialect and observe the exotic but not uncivilized customs of the east (though admittedly they may seem uncivilized to those of us raised in christendom), and to learn a bit of Franglais, Canada's fifth offical language (Inuk, Cree, French, and English being the others).
