The theme in Holes that I thought stood out to me the most was, "Don't judge people by how they look but by how they act."
"Besides being on the television screen, Clyde Livingston was also sitting on the couch next to Stanley." "There was a small party at the Yelnats house. Except for Stanley and Hector, everyone there was an adult. All kinds of snacks and drinks were set out on the counter, including caviar, champagne, and the fixings to make ice cream sundaes."
I can't believe I actually thought I might meet friends here. “Hey, Caveman, said Zigzag. You should get a whip. Then if your slave doesn’t dig fast enough, you can crack it across his back. He’s not my slave,” said Stanley. We have a deal, that’s all."
Part of my evidence: In cell number two it shows Stanley getting bullied/made fun of by the other boys at camp this was shown in chapter 30.
In the first cell I have a picture of Clyde, Stanley And Zero I used that picture to help sow my theme because in the beginning of the book Zero didn't have any friends/ didn't talk to people like Stanley and him and Stanley became best friends. In the Second cell I have a picture of Stanley trying to dig his first hole but he was being distracted by these other boys at camp who were making fun of him these boys were not his friends until he got to know him and he got to know them. In cell four I have a picture of Stanley going to the Warden even though Stanley did not steal the sun flower seeds he stood up for his friends who did because they became such good friends. In cell five I have a picture with Stanley accidentally kicking someones chair while the other kid is being mean to him then his friends came and stood up for him. I used all of these examples to show that Stanley was not friends with these boys and then they became great friends not because they were not alike or different than each other but because they set aside there differences.
"They had to step around holes to get to the cabin door. Stanley was surprised to see so many around the cabin. He would have expected the Warden to not want the campers digging so close to her home. But several holes were right up against the cabin wall. The holes were closer together here as well, and were of different shapes and sizes. Mr. Sir knocked on the door. Stanley still held the empty sack."
Stanley accidentally runs into a guy sitting on the couch he gets mad and starts saying bad things about Stanley then x-ray and a couple of other boys come over and start standing up for Stanley/ Caveman.
