by Meindert DeJong, and published by Harper
Winner Blurb: 

The Wheel on the School is an introspective story of Lina, her five school-boy companions and the elder inhabitants of Shora, a small Dutch fishing village where storks have never nested.  Against his native Netherlands as a background, DeJong builds a warm, tender, suspenseful tale as the six children search for a wagon wheel on which the storks traditionally prefer to build their nests.  In short, the rhythmic sentences DeJong uses has revealed his keen understanding of children, power to characterize and ability to set forth emotional situations of juvenile appeal.
