Hans Brinker retold by Bruce Coville

Bruce Coville gives us a simple retelling of Hans Brinker, originally written by Mary Mapes Dodge. Laurel Long's gorgeous illustrations really make this picture book attractive. Her paintings evoke a warm feeling for the small Dutch village despite the cold winter scenery. This is a beautiful picture book well worth reading for those new to the story of Hans Brinker and those of us who wish to revisit the familiar story.
