I love the barren landscape in this one with all the holes and the thumb mountain waaaay off in the back.

  1. There are so many Holes covers! I love this book — and I never would have found it without my Great Newbery Quest. 🙂

    Hmmm. I love the Special Mention a ton. Other than that? Vitamin 2016. And my least favorite is definitely Trei. You’re so right. What’s with those weird faces?!

    1. Haha thats a great way to find it 😀 I read it in Middle School.

      I think if I had the books in person the special mention might have been my favorite but its just to hard to see what is going on!! And I like the Vitamin 2016 a lot too 😀

  2. What a huge choice – though yes – I also think your favourite is the best one. It looks an intriguing read and a brilliantly appropriate book for this week’s them. Have you read it?
