Award-winning author Louis Sachar is a terrific storyteller who always has an original and interesting perspective.

Holes tells the story of Stanley Yelnats, whose family has a history of bad luck. Stanley's not too surprised when he's sent to a juvenile detention centre in Texas for a crime he didn't commit, but even he can't believe that all he and the other boys have to do is dig holes all day.

Before long, Stanley realises that what he must actually uncover is the truth... Readers from 11+ who love a good story will find this totally unputdownable.

What a surprise! -

This book is funny, quirky and tightly plotted - I haven't enjoyed a book so much for ages. Stanley Yelnats doesn't mind so much going off to a Green Lake Camp - after all, his family could never afford to send him to summer camp, so this seems like it might be the next best thing. The trouble is, the lake dried up years ago, the only green things around are the poisonous lizards that are as good as a death sentence if they touch you, and he has to spend every day digging a very large hole in the blazing sun. But Stanley finds a lot more than sand digging in that desert. A recommended read for readers 9+ to any age.
