Holes Literature Unit

By Louis Sachar

Stanley Yelnats is in a tough situation. He was wrongly accused and convicted of stealing the shoes of a very famous baseball player from a charity event. Stanley is not surprised that such a rotten thing happened to him because he and his family are under a curse. The curse started with his great-grandfather. Ever since then, Stanley’s family has had rotten luck.

Because Stanley is a minor, he is sent to a detention center for boys, Camp Green Lake, as his sentence. Though the name implies that it is a nice place, it is not. The lake has turned into a dry desert. As punishment, Stanley and the other boys at the detention center are forced to dig a hole that is five feet wide by five feet deep each and every day. They are told that digging the holes will build their character. However, Stanley learns the truth when he pieces together the story of Kissin’ Kate Barlow. The boys are merely being used as labor to dig holes in search of a buried treasure. Will Stanley find the treasure and escape the evil warden? This story will have children glued to their seats as they anxiously read to discover exactly what will happen next.
