These are the adventures of Flat Bobby. Flat Bobby is a close cousin of Flat Stanley. Flat Bobby has been sent out to several people all around the world. He will be back home safely with me by February 2nd and will be on display for my school's Open House in the Spring.

If you would like to invite Flat Bobby into your home, please read the Bobby's letter and let me know. This is my school project.

If you would like to participate by downloading a Flat Bobby clone and taking him on a jouney, please feel free to do so. I got the offical rule that Flat Bobby is allowed to travel through the internet.

Thank you!



Flat Bobby's visa has been extended. He is still free to travel the world!! We are currently seeking hosts in Africa and South America. If you are willing to host Flat Bobby, please let us know.

Thank you!

After breakfast Flat Bobby and I went across the street to Marco Polo hotel to see the Chinese New Year decorations. Immediately Bobby jumped up on the roof of the small house where New Years food gifts were being sold. He felt like an action hero up on the dragon roof!

Bobby and Giant Chinese Coin

Xiamen, China - in front of the hotel Flat Bobby wanted to know if anybody could ever spend such a large Chinese coin. Sadly I told him it is just a decoration with the traditional Chinese New Year twins on either side.
