still wonderful

This book seems to be in print in the UK. I picked up a copy in English in Holland, near the town of Edam, where it is set. I remember it from my own childhood and it still charms. But I've given the one I bought as a gift and wanted to buy additional copies. So I add my voice to the chorus looking for a reprint.

A Very Special Book

I happened to see the picture book while on vacation in Holland. (Highly overpriced, but since it's out of print here it was worth it.) This is such a cute story and I look forward to sharing it with children. It can expose children to some characteristics of this beautiful country many of them haven't even heard of. Hendrika is the most adorable cow!

A wonderful book that I wish would be reprinted.

I found this book in our local library and it quickly became one of those we regularly took out. Now that our family has moved, I would like to buy it for my children, but so far I have had no luck finding it. My older daughter especially loves to read books dealing with different times and different places. This book certainly deserves to be available more than some so-called "classics".

A charming endearing and enduring tale.

I read this book when I lived in Amsterdam as a little girl. Of course it was in Dutch which I spoke fluently at the time. I found the book in the attic many years later and was surprised that I couldn't read it any more, because I still remembered the story. I would like my children to read this book and have such long-lasting memories of a dear story.

Peter Spiers first illustrated book

This first book illustrated by Peter Spier shows his early style. It is rich with details depicting rural and village life in Holland. The story is a favorite among my family. Hopefully it will be reprinted in the near future.
