really liked it
bookshelves: children-s-books, fiction, newbery-medal-winners, books-set-in-poland
Read in January, 1960

Although I'm not sure it was a better book, overall, than Wanda Gag's Millions of Cats, which was a runner-up for the 1929 Newbery Medal, this is certainly a fine book and gives a good view of Polish culture before World War II. It also has a great Christmas chapter. I'll report further when I reread the whole book.
