This 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.

Kathryn Lindskoog faithfully preserves every detail of the original story. Outdated language and historical inaccuracies are trimmed away so the exciting plot and characters can take center stage.
