Attentive readers will be rewarded with a rare treasure in this witty story of looking for the extraordinary – and finding it in a manner they'd never expect...

From the multiple award-winning, best-selling team of Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen, Sam & Dave Dig a Hole perfectly captures the imaginary worlds young children create when they play, turning the simplest things into the biggest adventures.With perfect pacing and buckets of visual humour, this tale is the perfect read aloud for children age 5+.
