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! 

In Nuremberg, the toy city of Germany, was the workshop of Papa Toymaker, the father of little Mitz and Fritz. Mitz is a bright sunny-faced little girl with rosy cheeks and a plump, saucy look. Fritz, a little younger, has the look of one who dreams. Often he made her angry with his dreamy ways and the mistakes he made.

But his music! A different thing! Mitz thought it was the sweetest music in the world. But Father hated the violin and Fritz must never play when he was around.

Then came a time when no one in Nuremberg bought the toys made in the little workshop. So Papa Toymaker bought a gypsy wagon and they all start out to travel from place to place. This was a beginning of a glorious series of adventures for little Mitz and Fritz. They see for the first time the wonders of their own country, Germany. Up the beautiful Rhine they travel, past the ancient castles and the famous Rock of the Lorelei to the great cities, Frankfurt, Bonn, Coblenz, Berlin, Weimar, the poet city and many other fascinating places that abound in story and legend.
