Comments about Holes:
Simple language used in depicting the story of a boy in difficult conditions. Also in movie format for making comparisons between the written word and the screen. Uses historical connections for a broader understanding of the hardships of racism and eaking out a living in less affluent parts of the US
"A dazzling blend of social commentary, tall tale and magic realism."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred
