      From the publisher:
      In honor of her life and work, Bethlehem Books is very happy to bring
      back one of the most delightful family books ever written. With this
      1935 Newbery Honor book, author/illustrator Hilda van Stockum made her
      debut into the world of children's books. Within its pages she
      adroitly captures Dutch life as it was in the early part of the 20th
      century.
      Twins Afke and Evert have a particularly understanding
      teacher who decides to take his class on a winter skating trip to a
      nearby town. Evert and his buddies, shy Simon and loyal Afke all have
      their share of adventures. Everyone (Teacher most of all) breathes a
      happy sigh of relief upon arriving home safely after a very full day.
      Seven full-color paintings and numerous line drawings
      enliven this 2007 Commemorative Edition. With a new special feature
      "Hilda van Stockum: A Legacy of Light" describing her life and
      literary history.
