My name is Stanley Yelnats. Before I was sent to Camp Green Lake, you might say I was a total loser. Camp Green Lake is located in a giant dried-up lake bed deep in the heart of Texas. When I was there, it hadn’t rained for over a hundred years

My name is Stanley Yelnats. When I was there, it hadn’t rained for over a hundred years. It rained the day I was released, but it is still very hot and very dry.

Stanley Yelnats, now home from his adventures at Camp Green Lake Juvenile Correctional Facility, has decided to write a survival guide to help future campers to better endure their time spent there (since it has apparently re-opened?. I have no idea why exactly, but for some reason every time I heard about this book in recent years I figured it was a movie tie-in/adaptation from back in the day, so I didn't have much interest. Then when I read the excerpt included at the end of the (Maybe . ).

Survival Guide to Camp Green Lake. Book in the Holes Series). com User, February 2, 2004. I really should have read Holes first but I am glad that I read this one because it is so HILARIOUS!

Should you ever find yourself at Camp Green Lake–or somewhere similar–this is the guide for you. Stanley Yelnats (Caveman, to some of you) offers anecdotes and advice on everything from digging the perfect hole to identifying and avoiding the wildlife (scorpions, tarantulas, rattlesnakes, yellow-spotted lizards, Mr. Sir) to help make your stay a more pleasant one.

A great post-script to the story "Holes."

I bought this book because my four kids loved Holes. The book is short and the chapters are short. It is a perfect read aloud. The kids enjoy the humor and the expansion of a story they loved.
  • Marirne
Loved it, loved Holes also. Great books for kids. Louis is a good author.

I happen to think "Holes," Louis Sachar's award-winner starring Stanley Yelnats, is fabulous, and gave it a deserved five stars. This book, "Stanley Yelnats Survival Guide" - a kind of sequel to Holes -- seems to be all the material he left out the original (as well as some that is included) and jammed it into this book. On its own I suppose it would be okay, but to really understand it you'd have to read "Holes," rendering this book a disappointment - at best.

By the way: His "Dogs Don't Tell Jokes" is a winner.

Holes is one of the best books for young boy readers and old lady reading tutors. I am a reading tutor in a 5th grade class and this follow-up book is fun.
  • Ndav
Funny, easy to read, come in pretty good shape.
Very children friendly. Recommended for all kind of age of reader!

I *loved* the book Holes, I've read it over ten times, so I was a little unsure if this would be as good. Stanley Yelnats Survival Guide to Camp Green Lake is hilarious, just as good as the original, Holes.
This book is written "by" Stanley Yelnats, so it's really funny to read about what he thinks. He uses sarcasam to tell you what went on after he left, everything about how each camper (in his tent) got there, how to avoid the wildlife, and what not to say to the campers. There are also quizzes, which are hilarious, but the highlight of the book is definately the appendix-type thing in the back, which explains why each camper was there, and they're laugh-out loud funny.
I recommend this book if you liked the book or movie Holes, you won't be disappointed, the only thing is, dont read it in public, because you will laugh out loud!
Overall grade: A+
As much as I adore Louis Sachar, this book was pretty pathetic, and quite obviously a marketing ploy. While I was glad that there wasn't excessive recappage, mostly everything found in this book could have either been inferred from Holes, or was directly out of the book. There are some really neat extra tidbits that are worth reading, but it's not worth paying the $4.99 just for those, when I'm sure they could be found online. I just feel like this was written to ride the wave of Holes hysteria after the movie came out. No surprise, they were released the same year. It's like someone's saying, "hey, don't wanna read through the big thick book? Read this condensed version instead!", which is, quite frankly, frustrating. On the other hand, I would have loved to read Pendanski's book, much more so than Small Steps, which was what came after.

Rating: 1.5/5
