One of the main ways in which Stanley changed was that at the beginning he had “no friends” and was bullied frequently. This changed because of the fact that he eventually made friends with his camp mates. The bullying would have also stopped because by the time we got back to civilisation he was no longer “fat” which was the main reason he had be bullied.

Stanley’s home situation also changed when he left for “Camp Green Lake” his father was struggling to find a way to “recycle” old sneakers. His family also was reasonably poor at the start. By the end however Stanley’s dad with the help of the infamous “sploosh” was able to stop the sneakers smelling. Stanley also discovered a trunk of extremely valuable shares which belonged to his family. The fact that his family was now reasonably well off made Stanley more confident in himself and a more pleasant person to be around.

    Stanley Yelnats was spelled backwards. Stanley had been at Camp Green Lake for his sentence which was i think 6 or 18 months

    They didn''t watch it actually! I think it''s a little old for them (although my six year old probably would have been fine).

    I got it from netflix.for me. :)

    Great comparison, I didn''t even know there was a movie and I only read Holes late last year, I''ll try and find a copy here.

    Holes is Sachar's most successful book and has won numerous awards, including the Newbery Medal, the National Book Award, and the Boston Globe- Horn Book Award. It was also listed as an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, a New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year, and a Publisher's Weekly Best Book of the Year.

    Although Sachar is never completely sure where the inspiration for his books comes from, his knowledge of the unbearably hot Texas summers did serve to set the scene for Camp Green Lake. Many of Sachar's books, including Holes, are about children who don't fit in or who have low self-esteem. Like these other books, the main character in Holes gains self-confidence by the end of the book and makes some friends in the process.

    Published in 1999, Louis Sachar''s Holes almost immediately became the talk of the town – well, the librarians'' and children''s book experts'' town, that is. Hailed by critics as "dazzling," "heartrending," and "wildly inventive," it went on to win a whole slew of children''s book prizes, including the Newbery Medal, the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, and the National Book Award for Young People''s Literature. Not too shabby.

    Despite this conviction, Stanley is innocent of the theft of which he has been accused, and actually - improbably - found the sneakers when they fell from the sky and into his hands. Since his father is an inventor working on a cure for foot odor, Stanley believes the sneakers are his "destiny," maybe even a "gift from God" that will signal a turn for the better in his family's unfortunate circumstances (24). Instead - and Stanley attributes this bad luck to a family curse - he is arrested and sent to Camp Green Lake to do his time and eventually be rehabilitated into society.
