This time, we follow Flat Stanley as he explores San Francisco, California. The Lambchops are on a family vacation to San Francisco. But when Stanley saves a girl from barreling down one of San Francisco's steep hills in her wheelchair, he's shocked to find that she's actually been looking for him. The girl, Lily, is trying to perform an amazing trick that no one has done before - escaping from Alcatraz prison - and she needs Stanley's help!
