THERE WERE A HANDFUL OF BOOKS THAT I READ AS A CHILD THAT I REALY LOVED. THIS IS ONE OF THEM. I GOT THIS AS A BOOK CLUB CHOICE AND IT WAS GREAT. I DON'T REALLY REMEMBER IT ALL BUT I REMEMBER THAT THE KIDS WERE IN AN ATTIC IN HOLLAND, I THINK, DURING A MASSIVE FLOODING EVENT. IT HAS BEEN ALMOST 50 YEARS SINXE I READ THIS. My sister surprised me with a copy of this book that my beloved fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Bynum, read to us aloud. I loved having her read the book to us and never forgot the suspenseand even terrorthat the entire class shared with the Wielemaker family during the prolonged storm and the resulting rising waters.
Written in 1959 and translated into English in 1961, it was a Weekly Reader Children's Book Club selection in 1962 (showing my age!)
I loved it then, and loved it now. Even though I knew the family would survive, I relived their struggles, fear, cold, and physical pain with them.
I'm so grateful to my sister for finding this book for me again. What an unexpected and delightful treat! This was okay if you're really interested in learning about how it must have been for those in the midst of the Holland flooding in the 1950s. It was a bit repetitive and dragged for me. There were a few funny moments, but it was mostly a playbyplay, so it wasn't the best readaloud choice. I remember reading this in fifth grade. The images were vivid enough to have stayed with me all these years (I'm in my early 60s). I read this as a child and, as I recall, couldn't put it down. I just had to find out if they'd be rescued from the flood! This is another one of those books I should reread now that I'm an adult. A book purchased through the 1962 Weekly Reader book club in elementary school for my older brother and then passed on to me. Don't know if I ever read it as a child, but an interesting and wellwritten account of the 1952 flood in the Netherlands following one family's circumstances.
