    Louis Sachar got a lot of calls from Hollywood after his book “Holes,” which turns 20 years old this June, won the Newbery Book Award and the National Book Award for Young People's Literature.
    But Sachar was so choosey about who he'd sell the book's film rights to that it took five years before “Holes” the movie, starring Sigourney Weaver, Jon Voight and a young Shia LaBeouf, hit the big screen.
