Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates: Mary Mapes Dodge

This is a summary I did years ago. My best that I've found.

Set in Holland, this story has a lot of history. It is the story of two children, their mother, their father, their friends, and their self appointed enemies. It is the story of an idiot father, a watch, a missing thousand guilders, and...Some silver skates.

Hans asked the greatest doctor or meester in Holland to look at his father. Can he be cured? Can the watch be returned to it's missing owner? Will the thousand guilders ever be restored? and...Is there any chance to win the silver skates?


  1. I loved this movie as kid. It was so odd and not at all my type of movie, but I try to watch it whenever it's on, which isn't very often.

  2. I've never seen the movie. But Mom used to read it to us when we were little. :) Thanks for the comment!

  3. So...you had the ability to write good summaries early on....

  4. Thanks Tommie! This one could use a ton of work! :)
