"Holes": Folklore Redux.
Mascia, Elizabeth G.
ALAN Review, v28 n2 p51-53 Win 2001
Demonstrates that a careful reading of the book for young adults, "Holes" by Louis Sachar, reveals how this contemporary story is grounded in folklore, and that it is this debt to folk literature that allows readers to accept an improbable plot. Shows how the story weaves together elements from traditional folk literature and stretches them across a contemporary landscape. (SR)
