Sachar, Louis "Stanley Yelnats' Survival Guide to Camp Green Lake"

Sachar, Louis "Stanley Yelnats' Survival Guide to Camp Green Lake" - 2003

Same as with "Holes" and "Small Steps", this book was in the house and after I'd read those two already, I thought I'd give this a go, as well. It is a funny little book for children who might not want to read too much at one time or who are not that much into fiction. Also for children who have read "Holes".

The book features information on how to:
* Dig the Perfect hole
* Identify Rattlesnakes, Tarantulas, Yellow-Spotted Lizards, Mr. Sir, and other dangerous creatures
* Win friends and influence people
* And more

From the back cover:

"Imagine your misfortune if, like Stanley Yelnats, you found yourself the victim of a miscarriage of justice and interned in Camp Green Lake Correctional Institute. How would you survive? Thoughtfully Louis Sachar has learnt his knowledge and expertise to the subject and created this wonderful, quirky, and utterly essential guide to toughing it out in the Texan desert. Spiced with lots of information about the characters in 'Holes', as well as lots of do's and don'ts for survival, this is an essential book for all those hundreds of thousands of 'Holes' fans."
