“I will not play tug o' war. I'd rather play hug o' war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs, Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug, Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins, and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins.”
"Holes" by Louis Sachar. I have taught more than one lesson about this book, and I have re-read it each time. I have not yet tired of it. In writing this book, Sachar displayed a gift for weaving different plots together into an exceptional story.
