Holes reminds me more of a children’s book than anything else. The full colour artwork inside is accompanied by limited text, to tell a fairly simple story. However, the artwork is very accomplished, and the plain cut and paste cover probably works against the book.
The story is about a young child believing that fairies lived at the bottom of her garden. It’s not very long, and the story is more of an anecdote than anything else, but the artwork is really nice. It combines collage work with painted art and cut and paste lettering, and I think it looks really good. Above all else I love the badgers with wings, but overall this is a really nice looking book.
