The iconic, multi-million bestselling novel from Louis Sachar. Hilarious, inventive and wonderfully compelling, this is an unmissable modern classic.
Louis Sachar is the author of the award-winning international bestseller Holes, which was made into a film in 2003. All of Louis's books for children have been published in the UK by Bloomsbury. These also include Small Steps, Stanley Yelnats' Survival Guide to Camp Green Lake, Dogs Don't Tell Jokes, There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom, Someday Angeline, and the Marvin Redpost series and Wayside School books. He is the recipient of many of the world's best regarded book prizes, including the National Book Award and the Newbery Medal. Louis Sachar lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife, daughter and two dogs.
Holes is one of those instant classics that adults, as well as
children over eight, will thoroughly enjoy. Sachar has created
something quite different from JK Rowling or Philip Pullman, but no
less enchanting * Independent on Sunday *
If you want a witty, moving read that grabs you and never lets up, look no further than Holes * The Daily Telegraph *
Totally absorbing and beautifully written * Bookseller *
Forget the fame and glamour of Holes, the movie and the rest. Just remember Camp Green Lake and that story that gave us one of the best books of the last ten years * Books for Keeps *
