More Description

First published in 1880, Heidi introduces young readers and listeners to one of the most charming young heroines ever.

This beautiful, stirring novel tells of five-year-old Heidi, an orphan sent to live high up in the mountains with her cantankerous grandfather. Sweet-natured Heidi soon wins her grandfather's heart and makes friends with the lively young goatherd, Peter. Her newfound happiness ends quickly, however, when Heidi's aunt, Dete, takes her off to the city of Frankfurt to be a companion to a sickly child. Finally Heidi is restored to her Alpine home. And when her new friend, Clara, joins her in the mountains, Heidi's innocent charm and the majestic beauty of the Alps combine to work a healing miracle.

This edition of Heidi features ten gorgeous color plates and twenty-three black-and-white drawings by Jessie Willcox Smith. Smith's sumptuous pictures capture all the joy of this beloved classic, from the splendor of Switzerland's mighty Alps to the subdued drama of Clara's upper-class Frankfurt home to the exhilarating pleasure of an Alpine sleigh ride.

Now a whole new generation of young readers can fall under the enchanting spell that Heidi has cast for more than a century
