About the Hole Story
One day Charlie finds a hole. A hole of his very own! He picks it up and pops it in his pocket. But it doesn’t take Charlie long to realise that a hole in your pocket is not a good thing to have …

Praise for the book…
‘This is a clever story, beautifully illustrated. A book for young and old to read, share and keep.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Adult or preschooler, the more carefully you look at this delightful picturebook the more fun you get out of it.’ Adelaide Advertiser

‘One of the joys of early childhood are those moments when you discover the remarkable in the everyday. The Hole Story turns on such uncanny moments … The text really comes to life when read aloud, and its occasional quirky vocabulary adds to the fun.’ Junior Books+Publishing
