The Chestry Oak book. Kate Seredy wields with expert finesse all the power of the most illustrious authors whose names I could introduce to the discussion: Louisa May Alcott, Rachel Field, Ruth Sawyer, .

The Chestry Oak book. Judging from The Chestry Oak, there isn't an author in the history of American literature whose ability I would say outclasses Kate Seredy's, no one better qualified to lead readers through a story than the vaunted winner of the 1938 Newbery Medal for her most famous work, The White Stag.

Occasionally something precious is lost for a while only to be rediscovered and become appreciated all over again. Perhaps never is this more true than with the story Chestry Oak. Originally published in 1948, it is a beautifully told story of a boy who begins with a happy childhood, overcomes peril, and finishes strong.

As he watches his homeland of Hungary being taken over and run by invaders from Nazi Germany, young Prince Michael of Chestry strives to retain his identity and integrity during one of the most dangerous seasons in human history. Michael carries an acorn all the way from his castle home in Chestry Valley to the warm soil of the Hudson Valley farm in the USA where he makes a new home after WWII.

As heartbreaking as it is triumphant, this book lingers with you long after you’ve read it. The story centers around a young Hungarian prince, Michael, during World War II. His loving upbringing, the family’s trials during the war, and his eventual escape and redemption. Filled with many memorable characters with quotes that resonate with wisdom and love.

I grew up reading The White Stag by Kate Seredy and always loved it. I have recently read a few of her other titles, namely A Tree for Peter and The Good Master. I was so happy to see that another of her books, The Chestry Oak, was being reprinted. As much as I love all of Seredy’s books, this is my favorite by the author, and among my top five books of all time. I’ve never felt a desire to write a review before, but felt I needed to share my thoughts on this book because of the impact it’s had on me.

When I read this book as a child, nearly a half-century ago, I was drawn by the romance of the life she described in pre-WWII Hungary. It was sold then as a child's book about horses. Re-reading the book since then, I love it even more than I did as a kid. Now what seems so poignant is not just the loss of that pre-war elegance in Hungary, but the mid-40s sanity of American farmers. Here's a window into a different millennium, to put it mildly.

The is a great story for perhaps 7th or 8th grade level. Great message and nothing questionable or edgy.

This is a beautiful story about a boy whose life was destroyed by WWII, the true story of many faceless and nameless people. His journey is moving and the end makes me tear up every time. This should be required reading in all schools as an historical novel and also to teach children compassion on their suffering brothers. Excellent story. So glad it is back in print. Would recommend it highly. Not just another novel.

Originally read 45 years ago, I have been looking for this book for a long time. Rereading it was well worth my time. War is ugly. Beauty rests within those who survive and hand down the stories that make survival desirable. Great insight.

I was thrilled to see this book back in print! My first purchase of The Chestry Oak cost me $35 and that's a bargain for a hardback today. Thankfully, every child can enjoy this amazing book with this high quality paperback reprint, and I have already purchased a copy for each of my kids (and future grandchildren). This is the kind of story that stays with you a lifetime. Simply beautiful.

You must read this book! I read it to my 12 yo daughter. The first few chapters were hard for me to get through,but we hung in there and it is now one of her favorite books. It's a touching story that will stay with you for years to come. A must read for any homeschool family.
A great book. I enjoyed reading it. A return to simpler days, and a good dose of WWII history.
