Dig deep in this award-winning, modern classic that will remind readers that adventure is right around the corner--or just under your feet!

Stanley Yelnats is under a curse. A curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather and has since followed generations of Yelnatses. Now Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys’ detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the boys build character by spending all day, every day digging holes exactly five feet wide and five feet deep. There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. But there are an awful lot of holes.

It doesn’t take long for Stanley to realize there’s more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake. The boys are digging holes because the warden is looking for something. But what could be buried under a dried-up lake? Stanley tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment—and redemption.

'A smart jigsaw puzzle of a novel.'  —New York Times 

*Includes a double bonus: an excerpt from Small Steps, the follow-up to Holes, as well as an excerpt from the New York Times bestseller Fuzzy Mud.

    I did not think that I would enjoy this book as much as I have! The narrator's voice merely painted a picture with his melodic voice. Sacher did a wonderful job writing this novel. Thank you!!!!

    When I read Holes, I really enjoyed it. It was easy to listen to and easy to follow along in a book.

    This was a fun and easy to hear story for both adults and tweens.

  • ilyas jibriil

    I would recommend this audiobook because of its lessons for teenagers who don't want to come from the holes they had been in before. Thanks for this audioboo.

  • Erica Vetter

    Voices were believable, the story is great, and it moves a good pace for the classroom or car ride. Listeners of all ages would enjoy, but perfect for my fifth grade class.
