I was first introduced to Louis Sachar through his main character Stanley Yelnats — that's Yelnats, Stanley spelled backwards — in his Newbery Medal and National Book Award winning book, Holes.
Well, he did it again! Read The Cardturner, A Novel About a King, a Queen, and a Joker. This book is the real delightful "deal." At the same time, you will learn about the card game of bridge.
