Author Info
Louis Sachar
Best known for the critically acclaimed HOLES, Louis Sachar was a lawyer before devoting himself to writing children's books full-time. Though he was born in New York, most of his childhood was spent in California, where he attended the University of California at Berkeley after a brief stint at Antioch ended by his father's death. His experiences working as a teacher's aide at a local elementary school inspired the popular Wayside School series. A bridge enthusiast, Sachar lives with his wife, Carla, in Austin, Texas.
From the Publisher
Annotation Following a miscarriage of justice, the ever-unlucky Stanley Yelnats is sentenced to imprisonment at a boys' juvenile detention center known as Camp Green Lake. There's just one thing about Camp Green Lake--there's no lake, just a dried-up lake bed. Every day, each boy must dig a hole in the dried-up lake bed: a hole five feet deep and five feet across. The sadistic warden claims that digging the holes helps the boys build character, but that's nothing more than a lie--and it's up to Stanley and his fellow prisoners to dig up the truth about why the warden really wants the holes dug. A New York Times Notable Book for 1998.
