Overview

When Stanley Yelnats is sent to Camp Green Lake Juvenile Correctional Facility for a crime he did not commit, life becomes much more of a challenge. First of all he has to dig a hole (as deep as a man) a day in the baking Texas heat, looking for who knows what. Then he has to avoid cruel Mr Sir and the menacing warden. Will Stanley survive in this hostile environment? In this 10th anniversary edition of "Holes", Louis Sachar has also leant his knowledge and expertise of roughing it out in the Texan desert in Stanley Yelnats' "Survival Guide to Camp Green Lake". Imagine your misfortune if, like Stanley Yelnats, you found yourself the victim of a miscarriage of justice and interned in a juvenile correctional facility. This witty and utterly essential guide to survival is spiced with lots of information about the characters in Holes and is the perfect addition to the bestseller.
