Tired teacher. That is, REtired teacher.
This book has been on my wish list for so long I don't even remember putting it there. I wish I had read it when I was young but alack I didn't. It was rich with the history of holland, a part I enjoyed, but so much of it had really very little to do with the story. In fact, Hans Brinker was often not the most prominent figure in the story. All in all I'm glad I now know the story and can recommend it to certain youngsters. For me it came a little too late to be among my favorites.
Flo Gibson is a superb narrator. I really enjoyed listening to her read this book.
