Simply written, yet deeply satisfying story of a boy wrongfully accused of stealing, a curse and a hunt for buried treasure. It draws upon eastern European folklore as well as the classic American tall tale, and combines them in a totally unique way. It's the kind of story that children and adults will completely enjoy for different reasons. It has won multiple awards, including the Newberry Medal and the Young Readers Choice Award, which is voted on by children.

Holes book review

Do you like digging holes? Well you won't after reading this book.

Holes is a great book about a boy named Stanley who gets blamed for stealing a famous soccer players cleats. These cleats were supposed to be donated to a homeless shelter. Instead of being sent to a juvenile detention centre, they send him to a camp, 18 hours from home called CAMP GREEN LAKE. In the blazing hot sun they make the kids dig holes 5 feet deep and 5 feet wide, everyday from 5:00 in the morning until they finish their hole late in the after noon. It's all about Stanley's friends and their adventures at Camp Green Lake.

Holes has many different and interesting characters, these are a few of them. The main character is about 12 years old named Stanley Yelnats. Stanley is a warm hearted caring friend. He gets teased at school about his weight (even by his teacher). There are also many others. One of the first people Stanley met was Mr. Sir he is one of the main leaders of Camp Green Lake. He also is a stubborn, mean and bossy person. Mr. Pendanski is the tent leader and he helps them all out with what they were going to do with themselves after they get out of Camp Green Lake. Zero is one of the people that Stanley meets and learns to trust. They gave Zero that nickname because he never talked and they thought that he had nothing inside of his head. There are many different characters that I can explain but you'll just have to read the book and find out.

Holes is set in a place that I bet you've never heard of. A place in Texas called Camp Green Lake. You might think there is a beautiful green lake, but to tell you the truth there's not even a lake in sight, not a drop of water either!

I saw the movie and loved it so much that I wished that I had read the book. I watched the movie, Holes, with my sister and two nephews. We all thought that Holes was wonderful. The book Holes is about a boy named Stanley Yelnats.

Stanley gets into trouble when he was walking home from school one day, and the shoes of his favorite baseball player fall from the sky and hit him in the head. The cops find him and take him back to his house. A few days later, he goes to court and they think he stole the shoes. They give him a decision. He can go to jail or go to Camp Green Lake.

Stanley picks Camp Green Lake a camp where they have to dig holes. The holes must be 5 feet deep and 8 feet across, and they must dig one every day. To find out what happens after Stanley is sent to Camp Green Lake, read the book.

Holes is a book by Louis Sachar, this book is a fiction book. The setting takes place at Camp Green Lake in present day. The two main characters in Holes are Stanley Yelnats and Hector Zeroni. Stanley is a very curious, brave and suspicious. Everyone has a nick name for each other and his is Caveman. The second main character is Hector Zeroni. His nickname is Zero because they say he's nothing. Hector is very quiet, doesn't talk, and does what he has to do. He's also very poor and has been separated from his mother. Hector and Stanley become best friends at first it's the only friends they get. The conflict begins when Stanley is blamed stealing a pair of shoes he didn't steal. The shoes fell out of no where. The judge sends him to a boys digging camp; where he thought he would have fun. Although when he arrives; there a many surprises coming his way. If you want to find out what happened read the book.
I really liked this book because it's entertaining and I didn't once want to put it down. The characters make this book breath taking. I would recommend Holes to both boys and girls for ages 8-13.

I made the mistake of seeing the movie before reading the book. The book is good but the movie is better. I think if I had read the book first it may have been a better choice.

This book jumps back and forth from two points of views. Stanlys, and his great great, well actually I can't remember the exact speil about his pig stealing grandfather, but they were cursed becuase of him.and becuase of that curse, Stanly gets sent to a work camp.... posing as a reformitory camp for boys..... becuase he supposidly stole famouse shoes. Yep thats rightr folks Famous shoes. Well any way, this is anthor one of those stories where the protaganist finds more than he figured.
