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 picturesqueattire darting with electric swiftness in and out amongeach 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?

American editor and writer, Dodge is best known for her juvenile fiction. She started her career for attaining livelihood. Later a magazine for children, St. Nicholas achieved high standards due to her hard work and attracted great writers.

Review:

"Hans Brinker was my best boyhood dream. Could I, if I tried terribly hard, become somebody like him? What a shame that hardly anybody knows Hans Brinker anymore. I am delighted that he is being brought back to life." --Lewis Smedes, Fuller Theological Seminary
