Sam and Dave Dig a Hole is a book full of humour and adventure! The story is about Sam and Dave who are on a mission to find something spectacular. To do this, they decide to dig a hole. They keep digging and digging and find nothing at all. The day is still quite spectacular, though and so is this book!Book Review: Sam and Dave Dig a Hole by Mac Barnett A Mum Reviews

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.Book Review: Sam and Dave Dig a Hole by Mac Barnett A Mum Reviews
