Brain Pickings' 13 Best Children's, Illustrated, and Picture Books of 2013 "Off-the-wall (so to speak) and seriously fun, this story is one to give a child of any age for exploring and pondering."--Kirkus Reviews Blog "With its moody line drawings, sly humor, and witty use of the hole in each page (when it's not a hole, it's a streetlight, balloon, nostril, etc.), Torseter's story amuses, provokes, and leaves readers wishing for more." -- Publishers Weekly "This Norwegian import is an almost-wordless picture book that will surprise and delight. [...] Entirely playful and a truly wondrous look at the world, this book will have you reading it again right away." -- Waking Brain Cells "For a humorous demonstration of how a little thing can have big implications, look no further than "The Hole," by Norwegian writer and illustrator Oyvind Torseter. This stylish book has a single small hole drilled all the way through its middle, which brings readers in on the joke from the beginning... [...][a] curiously affecting story." -- The Wall Street Journal "the story of a lovable protagonist who wakes up one day and discovers a mysterious hole in his apartment, which moves and seems to have a mind of its own. Befuddled, he looks for its origin -- in vain. He packs it in a box and takes it to a lab, but still no explanation." -- Brain Pickings "This is an extraordinary book that will have kids boggled and intrigued, and adults thinking. Delectable free-form sketches and monochromatic colour make it visual splendour for any reader. Wonderful stuff." -- The Kids' Book Review
