The Newbery Challenge: Holes
I think Holes is one of the most "popular" Newbery winners. Do you remember when you first read it? Is it popular in your classroom or library? If you're a young reader, have you read it? Have you seen the movie? OK, I'll stop asking questions--this could go on all day.
Please visit Mr. Colby Sharp's blog to hear his thoughts.

Louis Sachar participated in Random House's Newbery event during the ALA Midwinter meeting.
Travis Jonker designed the cover on the right.
This is what I found when I searched "Travis Jonker + Holes." Nice!
Holes brought in $16,300,155 during its opening weekend.
Borrow Holes from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
