This is a great book I actually found a lot of interest in this book unlike others I have read recently. There is a lot of surprises in the book that I was shocked about.
There wasn’t anything I didn’t like about this book.It was easy to read, very clear so I could understand and very entertaining. A lot of kids have read this book or should have in my opinion. A lot of people have told me about his book and how good it was that’s why I decided to finally pick it up and give and it a try. I would say this book is probably my favorite book now by far.
I would recommend this book to kids in the fourth grade and up. There is a little fowl language but it is very easy to understand. Holes has also gotten a “John Newberry Metal”. That how you know its a great book.
