The music has commenced ... Where are the racers?
All assembled together near the white columns.
It is a beautiful sight. Forty boys and girls in picturesque
attire darting with electric swiftness in and out among
each other, or sailing in pairs and triplets, beckoning,
chatting, whispering in the fullness of youthful glee.
In a little Dutch village covered in snow, Hans Brinker and his sister, Gretel, glide down the canals on hand-carved wooden skates. Metal skates are much too expensive. Even so, they are two of the best skaters around. A race is announced with two grand prizes: a pair of skates for a boy and another for a girl. Hans and Gretel enter, but will they win the silver skates?
