Description

See below for English description.

Max et Sam décident de creuser un trou dans l'espoir de trouver un objet spectaculaire. Ils creusent vers le bas puis vers la droite, ils se séparent et se retrouvent, mais ils ne trouvent rien d'extraordinaire. Le lecteur s'amusera de voir Max et Sam manquer de justesse la découverte de diamants fabuleux et sera confus par la conclusion hilarante de la drôle d'aventure.

Max and Sam are on a mission. A mission to find something spectacular. So they dig a hole. And they keep digging. And they find . . . nothing. Yet the day turns out to be pretty spectacular after all. Attentive readers will be rewarded with a rare treasure in this witty story of looking for the extraordinary - and finding it in a manner you'd never expect.

Original title: Sam and Dave Dig a Hole

Editorial Review

« Ce qu'il y a de plus beau dans cette histoire, c'est qu'elle illustre simplement ce que les enfants savent déjà intuitivement sans pouvoir le décrire. La manière dont les illustrations de Klassen racontent autant l'histoire que les mots de Barnett est absolument géniale! »
-Globe and Mail

"The beauty of this story is that it articulates something kids seem to intuitively know, but can't really explain with language. The way that Klassen's illustrations tell as much of the story as Barnett's words is absolutely brilliant."
~ Globe and Mail
