Kindergarten-Grade 3 Grandmother tells Pieter, who has been sent to his room, the story of The Boy Who Held Back the Sea. Hort's adaptation of a story that appears in Mary Mapes Dodge's Hans Brinker is significantly longer with numerous changes and embellishments. More complex characters have been created, removing the story from the realm of fable and placing it into fiction.

This book tells a version of the story of the little Dutch boy who holds back the sea with his finger. The book is a little scary but it's a good engaging story. The pictures are all done in the style of the Dutch Masters. In this version, the boy is a bit naughty. He gets to skip church by offering to carry a pie to blind man, but then eats the pie himself instead of delivering it. When he finds the leaky dike, nobody believes him because he is known to be such a troublemaker. As a result, he ends up spending the night alone by the dike and has to endure a raging storm before he and the dike are rescued. The book is a little scary but it's a good engaging story

From the award-winning and renowned illustrator Thomas Locker, beautiful oil-painted illustrations pair with this wonderful retelling of the traditional Dutch folktale.  Jan had never done anything more heroic than shout for the guard because he’d imagined he’d seen a sea serpent. But when Jan discovered water trickling through a desolate stretch of the dike that protected his low-lying village, he knew he had to act fast.  “Visually stunning.”—Publishers Weekly "Locker's depiction of nature overpowering humanity is especially significant to the story and to the Dutch people who have spent centuries battling the sea."--School Library Journal

Every other page in The Boy Who Held Back the Sea has masterpiece paintings of 17th century Holland. Dramatically dark clouds fill the skies and pour down on the tiny country; bringing the sea level up over the dikes. Jan, the naughty boy at the start of the story, learns that living for his own pleasure can bring pain and even tragedy upon those he loves. By holding back the dike with his hand, he learns the beauty of self-sacrifice for others, and receives respect and praise from his family and neighbors. This picture book is too dramatic for tiny children; it is much more suitable for children about eight years old and up. There are a couple of crude parts that could have improved the book by being left out (the man who rescues Jan is a man of ill-repute--could not he have been a man of valor who is the night-watchman?), but over all it is an entertaining book which has breath-taking artwork and brings to life the ancient children's tale.

This is a classic story about a boy who held back the sea (and cried wolf more than once). Very sweet story, incredible illustrations/paintings. The detail in the illustrations have our daughter staring at each page, taking in every detail and giving her the full picture of what it would be like to live during that the story's timeframe.

My husband lived in the Netherlands for two years, so we've seen a few pictures and heard a few stories. When we checked this book out through the library, I knew we had to have it. The story is simple, and the pictures are amazing and penetrating classics.
