I loved this book as a child and shared it with a granddaughter who was equally taken by the wonderful narrative, lively characters and descriptive passages. I would recommend it to anyone 10 yrs and older.

Kate Seredy is an excellent writer & story teller. This is a fun and engaging story. Reminds me of 'Farmer Boy'- in Bulgaria! Lots of cultural, and historic 'everyday life' information woven in to a truly 'classic' tale.

The back cover reads "Jancsi is overjoyed to hear that his cousin from Budapest is coming to spend the summer on his father;s ranch on the Hungarian plains. But their summer proves more adventurous than he had hoped when headstrong Kate arrives, as together they share horseback races across the plains, country fairs, and a dangerous run-in with the gypsies.
In a vividly detailed scenes and beautiful illustrations, this Newbery Award-winning author presents an unforgettable world and characters who will be remembered forever."

I've never read this book but I hear it is very good.
