This book is the story of a poor brother and sister in long-ago Holland--the beautiful land of windmills, tulips, and wooden shoes. Here Hans and his sister Gretel experience championship skating, hunger and family hardship, and countless adventures. Through trials and moments of great joy, Hans and Gretel show how faith in Christ and loving sacrifice can heal families more than any amount of riches.

Editorial Reviews

Hans Brinker was my best boyhood dream. Could I, if I tried terribly hard, become somebody like him?. . . I am delighted that he is being brought back to life.
