I read this book as a child but a couple of years ago I went through this phase where I dug out, or looked up, as many of my favourite books from my childhood & this was one of them. Even as I ... Read full review

I hadn't read this since I was a kid. I remember LOVING it as a child but I was more frustrated with it this time around. The beginning of the book and end of the book are actually about Hans Brinker ... Read full review

I can't believe I made it through an upbringing in Holland, Michigan as a descendant of Dutch Immigrants, without having read Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates before now. A good third of the middle ... Read full review
