"Such a cute book! The title says it all. Jon Klassen is one of my favorite children's books illustrators today, and he does not disappoint. If you have kiddos I highly recommend reading this to them :)"

"Sam and Dave Dig a Hole. The uninspired, to-the-point title is the only thing uninspired about this very charming children's book. The humor here is mainly in the visuals, but this is not to say the story itself is lacking; though it's simple, it's highly memorable and just hilarious, and with only a few sentences per page, this is an ideal bedtime read. There's no moral to the story, but so what? Sometimes it's ok to just have a laugh and not a lesson.

Final verdict: A must-read-now probably most suitable for children ages 4-6."
