Far Out the Long Canal by Meindert DeJong

Pictures by Nancy Grossman

The award-winning author of THE WHEEL ON THE SCHOOL, TOWER BY THE SEA, and other beloved classics has written still another memorable and powerful story about the Netherlands.

In the village of Wierum, at the edge of the North Sea, practically everyone could skate except the very littlest children . . . and Moonta Riermersma, who was already nine years old. When ice finally came to the ditches and canals, Moonta was afire with enthusiasm, not only to learn to skate, but to let his skates lead him on to adventure. And when he heard of something called the New Church's Pipe, far out the long canal, he was determined to find it at any risk.

The action has a magic excitement, and all the characters—Moonta, Mother, Father, Grandfather, Aunt Cora, and the headmaster—are as real as they are appealing. The pictures by Nancy Grossman seem to blow the very winds of Holland right across the pages.
