The Hole Story of Kirby the Sneak and Arlo the True by Greg Williamson
“Greg Williamson can do anything. A 1,200-plus-line narrative poem? Child’s play. About a dog that filches another dog’s beloved hole, then returns it? You betcha. In rhyming couplets? Ayup. That manages, improbably, to morph into a profound and startling meditation on genealogy, Chaucer, and the nature of space and time, among other subjects? Absolutely.” Michael Griffith, author of Trophy, has this to say about Greg Williamson’s The Hole Story of Kirby the Sneak and Arlo the True.
Williamson’s story revolves around two pet dogs, Kirby and Arlo, who are owned by the same family. When Kirby steals the hole Arlo dug in the yard, an odd domino effect takes place and social order begins to break down. The ants get lazy. The brook dries up. The dragonfly has engine trouble. In an attempt to restore cosmic harmony, Kirby faces grave and injurious peril.
Fully illustrated by Brian Bowes, this is a book that will be loved by people of all ages.
