Synopsis

The Book with a Hole blasts a hole through the middle of the book itself. Sometimes the hole is an eye the reader can look through; sometimes it is a mouth and the reader's fingers make the teeth! The next minute it is a plate (with food drawn by the reader on a sheet of paper behind the book), an obstacle to jump across, or a saucepan. It's crazy! It's a Book with a Hole! 

Packed full of Hervé Tullet's zany drawings and inventive ideas, this is bound to enchant children of all ages.

Flynn uses the prisoners’ own words and omits phrases to create a fragmented poem which ends up sounding like the words and thoughts of someone suffering from extreme deprivation.
