Search for a Hole?

  • When they get to the hole that Fish suggested, there's an iron plate glued over the opening. They try to pry it up with a spade, but no luck.
  • The rest of the holes the boxtrolls recommend are similarly closed up, and the same thing happens with the hole that Titus knows of (even though it's small, since cabbageheads are smaller than people).
  • The boxtrolls remember the location of another hole, so they set off to investigate it next.
