Holes, Paperback / softback Book

Description

The iconic multi-million bestselling novel from Louis Sachar.

Hilarious, inventive and wonderfully compelling, this is an unmissable modern classic. WINNER OF THE NEWBERY MEDAL WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD Stanley Yelnats' family has a history of bad luck, so when a miscarriage of justice sends him to Camp Green Lake Juvenile Detention Centre (which isn't green and doesn't have a lake) he is not surprised.

Every day he and the other inmates are told to dig a hole, five foot wide by five foot deep, reporting anything they find.

Why? The evil warden claims that it's character building, but this is a lie.

It's up to Stanley to dig up the truth. Witty, inventive and completely unique, this is a masterpiece of storytelling that combines sly humour with irresistible, page-turning writing.
