Summary
SUMMARY: In the tiny sea town of Shora [in Holland] Lina--one of Shora's six school children--wonders why there are no storks around, because storks come to all the other villages. Her questions set off a chain of incidents wherein the five boys, Lina, their teacher and several other Shorans become engaged in a rather frantic search for wheels to put on their roofs--as nest bases for the birds
