Two friends, Sam and Dave, dig a hole. They are on a mission to find something spectacular. They decide to keep digging until they find it. Readers will get something spectacular as they enjoy seeing how close the boys get during their quest. The illustrations are simple but provide some extra details for attentive readers. What a fun book that leaves you still thinking about what happened.

  1. I loved this book! It was so much fun to read aloud to all the classes, but especially to see the reactions of the younger grades as Sam and Dave keep missing that “something spectacular” they’re in search of. Delightful!
