Hirosasazaki from Tokyo, 40, Japan said on Goodreads:
I read more simple version which omits some detail on Dutch culture and focuses on what Hans and her sister do. It was good read. Hayao Miyazaki recommended it and I know why. Hopefully I wanna read original version.

It made me want to read more about Holland. It was a cute children's book and now I know the story behind Hans Brinker. I've heard the name and it mentioned many times and now I understand it.
Bookguide from Wijchen, Netherlands said on Goodreads:
Not exactly an accurate portrait of the Netherlands today, but interesting on many levels. Sent to Kathmeista for the Expat RABCK.

This story didn't stick to me all that well from my childhood even though I'm sure I read it at least once. I must not have liked it that much....
Wendy from Chestnut Hill, MA said on Goodreads:
I can't believe how much I loved this book, it's probably because I didn't have to read it in school!!It was culturally rich inDutch history with an engaging sub story about a skating race.
Jeanette from Germany said on Goodreads:
My children and I listened to this on tape many years ago. (I had a hard time pronouncing the Dutch names-- the narrator was great) I love the story and the main characters. It made me want to visit Holland one day.
Brandon from The United States said on Goodreads:
This is one of the worst books ever!!!!!!!!!!!! The story starts off with two kids wanting to go skating in a contest and then just changes to five random, idiotic kids skating around talking about random things like stupid artwork you don't even care about. HORRIBLE!!!!!!!

This children's classic provides a tender and touching tour of 19th-century Holland. Meet the poor but valiant Brinker family, learn from a young boy's skating excursion full of Dutch history and lore, and experience the exciting race for the silver skates.
