Reviews from Around the World Sam and Dave dig a hole. They dig, dig, and dig down, under, and side to side in search of something spectacular. Do they find what they’re looking for?
Barnett and Klassen make a spectacular duo! Mr. Barnett’s quiet, witty way with words and Klassen’s sly sense of humor and masterful use of space on the page make a fun, quirky, smart read. Kids will be pointing and shouting at the page—“It’s right there!” Haha….My favorite part was the look on the dog’s face. It’s amazing what Klassen can express in those little, bitty eyes. So grab a shovel and start digging! Come see what Sam and Dave find. I’ll bring the chocolate milk and animal cookies. :) A highly recommended read that reminds readers that it’s alright to fall. Sometimes falling is the best part. You never know where you'll end up. — Laura, Goodreads
