Journey from Peppermint Street

Journey from Peppermint StreetJourney from Peppermint Street by Meindert DeJong
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This gentle coming-of-age story still resonates with me more than 40 years after I first read it. Siebren goes with his grandfather on a great adventure – walking across the marshes to visit Aunt Hinka. Siebren has never left his small village, and we feel his excitement and apprehension as he passes the last house on the outskirts of the town.
Filled with wonder, fear and courage, Journey from Peppermint Street is a delightful book for younger readers.
