Book review: The Hole Story


The Hole Story written and illustrated by Kelly Canby

The Hole Story by Kelly Canby, Fremantle Press, ISBN 9781925591125

Reuben reviewed his own copy of this book.

Charlie finds a hole and puts it in his pocket and he puts it in his backpack, but everything falls out. So he goes to the shops to see who wants a hole, but they just don’t.

I love it. I’ve read it a lot. It’s funny.
