A sequel to Holes by master story-teller Louis Sachar. Ages 12+

Small Steps is the sequel to Sachar's runaway bestseller Holes, published in 1998 and winner of the Newbery Medal and a multitude of other awards. If you're looking for a book for a 5th grader or older and he/she has not read Holes, we recommend it enthusiastically, especially for boys. If Holes has been read and enjoyed, go out and get Small Steps. Serious Holes fans might also want to get their hands on a copy of Stanley Yelnat's Survival Guide to Camp Green Lake, which Sachar wrote shortly after Holes. The movie of Holes is surprisingly good too!
