Holes Chapter 10 Summary
- The next day, Stanley is digging another hole. He is hot, blistered, and even more miserable than he was the day before. (We're on day two here: eighteen months of this sure won't be easy.)
- As he's digging, he finds a rock with the outline of a fossilized fish in it. This could be his ticket to a day of rest!
- When Mr. Pendanski comes by with the water truck, the boys line up to have their canteens filled. They always line up in a specific order: X-Ray, Armpit, Squid, Zigzag, Magnet, Zero, and, finally, Stanley. (How about those names?)
- When it's his turn to get water, Stanley presents the fossil to Mr. Pendanski, expecting to get the rest of the day off. But no such luck: Mr. P tells him that the Warden isn't interested in fossils.
