WINNER OF THE NEWBERY MEDAL AND NATIONAL BOOK AWARDONE OF TIME MAGAZINE'S 100 BEST YA BOOKS OF ALL TIMEThe iconic, multi-million bestselling novel, in a 25th anniversary edition with exclusive new material inside.
An unmissable modern classic. Stanley Yelnats' family has a history of bad luck, so when a miscarriage of justice sends him to Camp Green Lake Juvenile Detention Centre (which isn't green and doesn't have a lake), it's not exactly a surprise. Every day he and the other inmates are told to dig a hole each, five foot wide by five foot deep, reporting anything they find.
Why? The evil warden claims that it builds character, but this is a lie.
It’s up to Stanley to dig up the truth. A masterpiece of storytelling that combines sly humour with irresistible, page-turning writing.
New 25th anniversary edition includes exclusive material from author Louis Sachar, a foreword from acclaimed author Phil Earle and brilliant readers' notes from Scott Evans (The Reader Teacher). 'A witty, moving read that grabs you and never lets up' Daily Telegraph
