The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, 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! 

Tom, a little American boy, was always reading about Holland and longing to go there. So it was not surprising that he soon began to dream about it. And such marvelous dreams! In them he met Katrina, the little Dutch tulip girl, or Tryntje, as she was called. And more marvelous yet, Tryntje turned out to be a real honest-to-goodness girl!

This fascinating story of the dream adventures of Tom and Tryntje in Tulip Land, and, finally, of their actual meeting in America will keep every child's attention to the very end. What could appeal more strongly to the child imagination than the idea of a tulip bulb traveling thousands of miles over the sea from Holland, wrapped in a letter from a lonely little Dutch girl and serving to introduce her to a strange little American boy? Fact and fancy are so deftly blended that the reader acquires useful knowledge without being aware of it.
