either a cute and funny children s book, or the most insidious and emotionally scarring book intended for children since The Velveteen Rabbit since i dig emotional scars like sam and dave dig that hole, i m gonna go with the darker interpretation here and i feel like this interpretation is earned, since the entire book causes increasing agitation and frustration in the reader, who can t quite

leading up to the final explosive frustration of wanting just ONE MORE PAGE to settle the ending s ambiguity but ambiguity s cool i dig it.the moral of this story is always listen to the dog.and also maybe don t fall asleep in holes what is this place come to my blog It s a great book It has some excellent broad humor, as well as one heck of a challenging ending that will make readers think Really, one of the best open ended picture book conclusions in recent memory I will now present six theories on what exactly happens at the end of Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, from least likely to most likely.Theory 1 The Dog is Jesus TheoryIn this theory, the dog that accompanies Sam and Dave is Jesus, trying to lead the boys in the right direction notice that the dog It s a great book It has some excellent broad humor, as well as one heck of a challenging ending that will make readers think Really, one of the best open ended picture book conclusions in recent memory I will now present six theories on what exactly happens at the end of Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, from least likely to most likely.Theory 1 The Dog is Jesus TheoryIn this theory, the dog that accompanies Sam and Dave is Jesus, trying to lead the boys in the right direction notice that the dog is always pointing the way to reach the jewels , yet they don t listen and end up missing the precious stones every time Thus when the dog Jesus digs down at the end of the book, the boys land in purgatory Oh, and what s that on the first page of the book An apple tree cue crazy guy voice GARDEN OF EDEN ANYONE Theory 2 The Truman Show esque Civilization TheoryThe boys fall into an underground world built to resemble their own The only problem The details are off Basically, if you ve seen the movie The Truman Show, it s exactly like that The sky isn t the sky it s a giant dome with lighting orchestrated by Ed Harris The cat is an actor cat Sam and Dave have entered a giant reality show Proponents of the Mount Weather conspiracy who believe there is a shadow government operating in a mountain in Virginia will likely be drawn to this interpretation.Theory 3 The Epic Journey TheoryIn this scenario credit to my wife for this one , the boys return to the exact same place they started, but their epic journey of digging as epic journeys tend to do forever changed how they see the world Hence the same, yet different vibe of the house and yard at the end.Theory 4 The Other Side of the World TheoryThis might be one of the most difficult theories to make sense of, yet it seems fairly plausible Sam and Dave dug through the earth, and the reason things look slightly different at the end is because they are different It s the other side of the world.Theory 5 The It Was All a Dream, Man TheoryWhat happens to the boys right before the craziest part of the book They fall asleep in the hole If TV, movies, and books have taught me anything, it s that if a character falls asleep and crazy stuff starts happening, it might be a dream Also supporting this theory is the fact that the boys go from filthy clothes to slightly less filthy clothes as they fall and land in the yard.Theory 6 The Alternate Reality TheoryI m guessing this is the one most kids and adults will arrive at It s the theory that seems the most likely to me When Sam and Dave dig deep enough, they don t end up on the other side of the world, but in an alternate reality This parallel world concept makes sense when you see how the house and yard at the end are almost exactly the same The could also be called The Another World Theory I tell you what, Sam Dave really know how to dig Their parents must be miners or something They dig these elaborate tunnels looking for something interesting The cute thing about this beginning story, is that we are able to see in the dirt around them and we see all the diamonds they are missing by inches They have the worst instincts for digging as every time they are getting close to a diamond, they decide to change directions The kids were going nuts It s right there, they need to kee I tell you what, Sam Dave really know how to dig Their parents must be miners or something They

going They were trying to get the kids to change directions The nephew kept saying they were so close The nephew got a little excited over this and he liked this book He gave it 4 stars The niece thought this book was amusing She gave it 3 stars The artwork is very minimalist in some ways It has lots of negative space I think is what you call it, or just space It is not frilly It is a cute
