There are holes in this book. Literally (on the cover) and metaphorically as we follow the adventures of Hermione Hole and Hamish Hole as they try to find a home. But what use is a hole? If there is a hole on a boat, the boat will sink. A hole in a sock needs mending, a hole in the ground could cause an accident. Holes have no space or use. Well, that may not be quite true as the neat conclusion to this gloriously fanciful – yet thoughtful – tale reveals. If it is Paul Bright’s imagination that has created the story, it is Bruce Ingman’s talents that give it particular life. His fluid lines and poster paint colours are the ideal accompaniment for this not-quite nonsense story that is rooted in the imagination of the child. Here is a real partnership that works; the result a picture book to delight readers young and old.
