Dodge did not write a sequel to Hans Brinker, but her later novel Land of Pluck deals with the same country. The reader seeking comparable works is best advised to read novels by Dodge's contemporaries Louisa May Alcott, Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Noah Brooks, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Mark Twain, all of whom wrote for young adult audiences.

These and other writers are approachable through individual titles, but anyone seeking a direct encounter with Dodge or the writers she encouraged should examine issues of St. Nicholas published during her editorship.
