Reviews

'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||'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'
