Holes Book Review

Holes Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

If you think the new Disney movie, Holes, looks good - wait until you read the book. Kidzworld has the dirt on this cool teen novel, so check it out!

Author: Louis Sachar

Like a ton of great movies, Disney's Holes, was a book long before it hit the big screen. So, if you loved the movie, why not check out the book too?

Paying a Price

Holes is all about a boy named Stanley Yelnats who has been falsely accused of stealing a pair of sneakers (you'll find out why if you crack open the book), and sent to Camp Green Lake - a camp for boys gone bad. The boys punishment at Camp Green Lake is not your average solitary confinement. Instead, detainees must dig holes in the middle of the Texan desert. Strange, huh?

Family Curse

Of course, Stanley blames his misfortune on his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather. You see, it's said that the Yelnats' family was cursed long ago when Stanley's great-great grandfather broke a promise with a gypsy. Ever since, bad luck has followed them wherever they go. Lucky for Stanley, the key to their curse just might be unlocked at Camp Green Lake... if he digs deep enough.


The Bottom Line

If you loved the movie, you should definitely pick up a copy of the book. Holes comes complete with color photos from the Disney film and it's sure to fill in all the dirty details that the movie leaves out about Stanley, the curse and the mystery of Camp Green Lake!


Holes Rating: 5


1 I want to see the movie! I've read the book once and I thought it was kool! I give it five stars (or whatever those things are!) Whoever sees the movie and likes it - read the book. If you read the book and liked it - see the movie!

If he can be a successful business man, then he can be a successful  president. That's my way of how I see him as a president. Lol why? Why would you support him?

He's the leader of our country, whether we like it or not, and we need to help him, as our government is based on the people. When you wish for him to fail, you're practically wishing for the country to fall... which isn't a good thing for the citizens o.o Okay so i kinda get this but what are you thinking? He is dumb and he should be impeached.
