Description of this Book

When Stanley Yelnats is sent to Camp Green Lake detention centre for a crime he did not commit, life becomes much more of a challenge. First of all he has to dig a hole a day - as deep as a man - in the baking Texas heat, looking for who knows what. Then he has to avoid the cruel Mr Sir and the menacing warden. Will Stanley survive in this hostile environment? This is a wonderful, heartwarming, funny and life-affirming novel that is both genuinely original and brilliantly written.
