With perfect pacing, the multiple award-winning, best-selling team of Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen dig down for a deadpan tale full of visual humour. From the award-winning team behind Extra Yarn, and illustrated by Jon Klassen, the Kate Greenaway-winning creator of This Is Not My Hat and I Want My Hat Back, comes a perfectly paced, deadpan tale full of visual humour. Sam and Dave are on a mission. A mission to find something spectacular. So they dig a hole. And they keep digging. And they find ... nothing. Yet the day turns out to be pretty spectacular after all. 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.

Now in paperback, a deadpan tale of celebrating the joys of outdoor play, with illustrations from 2014 Greenaway winner Klassen. * The Bookseller *
A perfectly paced, deadpan tale full of visual humour from an award-winning team. * The Bookseller Children's Buyer's Guide *
The witty and extraordinary story is so simple yet perfect. It's got all the words it needs and the text works beautifully with the mellow coloured, gorgeous illustrations (with important details!). The typography and layout of the book are well executed too and match the story perfectly. The books is a pleasure on the eyes for adults and children and it's a lovely story for parents to read with their children. * A Mum Reviews *
In simple illustrations, Sam and Dave Dig a Hole gives a host of opportunities for imagining and dreaming. -- Julia Ecceshare * Love Reading 4 Kids *
"[...] brilliant book with lots of layers." * Times Educational Supplement *
