The 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) he is not surprised. Every day he and the other inmates are told to dig a hole, five foot wide by five foot deep, reporting anything they find. Why? The evil warden claims that it’s character building, 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).
