Heidi

When Heidi, a cheerful, five-year old orphan, comes to live with her grandfather high in the Swiss Alps, the charming Swiss miss brings a bright ray of sunshine into the lives of the people around her. Young Peter, a goatherd, shares her love of nature, while his blind grandmother delights in the little girl's bubbling personality. Even Heidi's surly and hermit-like grandfather, the old Alm-Uncle, finds his long-lost grandchild a source of immense pleasure.

A few years later, when she is told to go to Frankfurt to serve as a companion for Klara, a well-to-do, but sickly girl, Heidi is forced to leave her beloved mountains and friends behind--an experience that proves highly traumatic to the innocent and sensitive little girl. But her return home and a visit from Klara result in magical moments that will leave young readers thoroughly captivated by this heartwarming tale of an unforgettable little girl and her effect on the people around her.

Complete and unabridged, this story "for children and those who love children" will thrill today's youngsters just as it has delighted generations of young readers and listeners since its original publication in 1881.
