Heidi One of the most popular pieces of children’s literature ever written
After the death of her mother, Heidi, a rosy-cheeked six-year-old, is dropped off on the doorstep of her grandfather, who lives in the mountains above a Swiss town. Grandfather is a frightening and withdrawn old man who has no use for the antics of a young girl, but the whole town falls in love with Heidi’s innocent spirit, and she in turn begins to feel affection for her grandfather.
From the blooming meadows in the valley of the Swiss Alps to a “haunted” house in Frankfurt, Johanna Spyri’s classic is suffused with Heidi’s warmth.
