Review quote

"[...] brilliant book with lots of layers." * Times Educational Supplement * In simple illustrations, Sam and Dave Dig a Hole gives a host of opportunities for imagining and dreaming. -- Julia Ecceshare * Love Reading 4 Kids * The witty and extraordinary story is so simple yet perfect. It's got all the words it needs and the text works beautifully with the mellow coloured, gorgeous illustrations (with important details!). The typography and layout of the book are well executed too and match the story perfectly. The books is a pleasure on the eyes for adults and children and it's a lovely story for parents to read with their children. * A Mum Reviews * A perfectly paced, deadpan tale full of visual humour from an award-winning team. * The Bookseller Children's Buyer's Guide * Now in paperback, a deadpan tale of celebrating the joys of outdoor play, with illustrations from 2014 Greenaway winner Klassen. * The Bookseller *
