This is one of the older Newbery Honor books, and one of the more enjoyable from its era. Brother and sister Guldklumpen and Nicolina live with their mother on a very poor farm in Sweden, but the children have great plans for their farm. The outcomes of their endeavors are rarely surprising, because all of the things these two work for come to fruition, but it is very enjoyable to see the children and their little farm thrive.
