sam and dave dig a hole

“When should we stop digging?" asked Sam.

“We are on a mission,” said Dave.

“We won’t stop digging until we find something spectacular."

Sam and Dave Dig a Hole is by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen, the pair behind the magical Extra Yarn (one of Avery's favorite books).  The story revolves around Sam and Dave who, well, make a big hole in the ground, and what they discover (or don't discover) along the way.  The scenes are rendered using colored pencils in dusky earthy tones, which is very fitting for the story.  The ending will have you thinking (and pining for Sam and Dave's next adventure)!
