I was having lunch one day at the café at the  Hardingtown City Hall when I saw a skinny kid reading a law book. Turns out that it was Phillip Stanislaw -- the kid who sued a student from his school for being slammed in the face with a dodgeball. Phillip has had a different sort of life. He comes from a circus family. His father is Leo Laugh-a-Lot and his mother is Matilda the Fat Lady. Well, I don’t have to tell you that to Phillip, dodgeball is no laughing matter!  It takes one courageous kid to take on the Unofficial Dodgeball Capital of the World. You can find out all about Phillip Stanislaw by reading “The Stupendous Dodgeball Fiasco”.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face 2007)
