When you think of holes, what comes to mind? Maybe the irritating hole in your sock. Or the hole on the shelf where you plucked out this book.

A hole can be surprising, like a sinkhole appearing overnight. Holes can be useful, like the tiny openings in aeroplane windows, or dramatic, like a mine that's visible from space. They can even be lifesaving, like a seal's breathing hole in the ice.

Holes are important to our everyday lives. They are investigated by scientists, used by artists, designed by engineers, and fixed by problem-solvers. They can be natural or human-made, big or small, plentiful or scarce, mysterious or very familiar. You'll find this book is chock full of holes why not take a peek inside!

Reading level varies from child to child, but we recommend this book for ages 8 to 12.
