"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
