    ...and now Miguel av Joseph Krumgold (rbtanger)
    rbtanger: The Good Master is a Newberry Honor book, ...And Now Miguel is a Newberry Winner. Both are excellent choices for the 8-11 age range; especially if you're doing an International Cultures unit. Both books contain similar themes although differently expressed and through very different cultures.… (mer)

Set in Hungary, this 1935 Newbery Honor book is one of those "learn about life in a different culture" candidates that were so popular with the Newberys for a good many years.
The plot described on the blurb says the book is about a rambunctious hellion of a girl being sent from her father in "the city" to spend some time with her relatives in "the country" because he can't handle her naughtiness anymore. So she comes to spend time with her uncle (the good master of the title), aunt and cousin. As she spends time with them, she begins to behave better and love the rural life. But all of this is rushed through in the first two chapters. Then, the rest of the book is just happy tales of what happens on a farm in Hungary. The morals are that your elders always know what's best for you, and rural life is better for you than urban living. It wasn't a bad book, but it wasn't a really good one either. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
"The Good Master" strikes me as a poor title, as the uncle is in no way a "master" to his son or niece, just genial and fatherly. Nor is he the protagonist. The story is primarily about Kate, and secondarily about Jancsi, her cousin. ( )

I remember being fascinated by this book as a child since I had no knowledge of Hungarian culture -- the skirts and the horses and the stories and songs. ( )

Cousin Kate from Budapest comes to spend the summer on her uncle’s ranch on the Hungarian plains to recuperate from an illness. She arrives with a letter from her father, who explains that Kate is more than a delicate child in need of fresh country air; in fact, she needs a strong hand to help control her incredible, disobedient, headstrong ways. Her uncle, the "Good Master," who has a way with dealing with wild animals, is asked to help in this endeavor.
At first, Kate and her cousin Jancsi do not get along very well, but as the story develops and Kate is in admiration of her cousin’s skill with the horses, she is won over. Jancsi, too, learns to appreciate his cousin, "the screaming little monkey," as she grows in her docility and eagerness to learn about the ways of the country.
In the end, Kate’s father comes to visit and is so taken by the transformation in his daughter that he decides to stay in the country from whence he comes with his brother’s family. ( )
