The Lovereading4Kids comment
April 2016 Book of the Month Holes generally get a bad press – after all they’re the last thing you want to find in a sock, pair of knickers, bag, bucket or boat! Perhaps this delightful book will win them some friends. Hamish and Hermione Hole need a new home when their bit of Swiss cheese is eaten – but where will they be welcome? Set in a royal palace there’s a fairy tale air to this and Bruce Ingman’s illustrations have a child-like simplicity that emphasises the fable feel. Hamish and Hermione are finger-paint blobs with two eyes, a mouth, stick legs and arms, but hugely expressive, dashing from scene to scene and, memorably, chatting on a wooden bench. Stylish fun! ~ Andrea Reece
The Hole Story by Paul Bright
When Hamish and Hermione hole are chased out of the cheese where they live, they search the palace for a new place to call home. But the holes cause havoc wherever they go - no one wants holes in their knickers, bike wheel or boat! Exhausted, the pair rest in a piece of wood, only to be discovered by the palace carpenter, who knows that holes can be really useful - especially when you are making beautiful musical instruments.
