What a wonderful story of a close knit family whose honesty, hard work, loyalty, and selflessness is ultimately rewarded while undergoing hardships of poverty, and sickness. You have to admire Hans, who first would have given up his opportunity to acquire a pair of steel ice skates so his sister Gretel could have a pair of her own, and later gives up his chance to compete in the big skating contest so his loyal friend Peter could compete. And of course you must fall in love with Gretel who really has a heart of gold and goes on to win the Silver Skates. It's a shame no movie, even the fine Disney version, didn't follow exactly the story line by Mary Mapes Dodge. This book truly belongs in every household.
