Kid Review: Holes

Kid Review: Holes

Elease says:

I think Holes was excellent. It was well written, and had a good plot. I especially liked how the story all tied together. Two thumbs up.

I agree with Elease, Holes is excellent! Here is a summary from the online catalog: “As further evidence of his family’s bad fortune which they attribute to a curse on a distant relative, Stanley Yelnats is sent to a correctional camp in the Texas desert where he finds his first real friend, a treasure, and a new sense of himself.” Holes won the Newbery Medal in 1999 – along with a whole bunch of other awards. In 2003 Louis Sachar gave the Indianapolis McFadden Lecture. Kids lined up for hours to have him sign their books. He was a really good sport too and stayed until the line was finished.
