The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

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.
