Sam, Dave and their dog have a challenge.  They want to dig and dig and dig until they find something spectacular – something huge – something thrilling.  They seem unsuccessful.  But are they really?  Pay close attention to the illustrations and you’ll discover what Sam and Dave found.  This book won a Caldecott Honor Medal for outstanding illustrations. (Booktalk by Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Award Committee)
