Puffin in Bloom

A new line of classics with gorgeously illustrated covers by renowned stationery brand Rifle Paper Co.'s lead artist, Anna Bond.

 

At the age of five, little orphan Heidi is sent to live with her grandfather in the Alps. Everyone in the village is afraid of him, but Heidi is fascinated by his long beard and bushy grey eyebrows. She loves her life in the mountains, playing in the sunshine and growing up amongst the goats and birds. But one terrible day, Heidi is collected by her aunt and is made to live with a new family in town. Heidi can't bear to be away from her grandfather; can she find a way back up the mountain, where she belongs?

Synopsis:

This classic tale of a young girl who lives with her grandfather in the SwissAlps is back in a new edition featuring an Introduction from acclaimed authorEva Ibbotson. Reissue.

Synopsis:

When you think classics, think Puffin!

"Looking forward to things is half the pleasure of them."

Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are in for a big surprise. They're waiting for an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables--but a skinny, red-haired girl turns up instead. Feisty and full of spirit, Anne Shirley charms her way into the Cuthberts' affection with her vivid imagination and constant chatter. It's not long before Anne finds herself in trouble, but soon it's impossible to imagine life without her.

Synopsis:

Heidi is five when she is sent to live with her grandfather in his lonely hut in the Alps. She quickly grows to love her carefree life with him in the mountain air, and the old man comes to love her, too. They are both unhappy when Heidi is sent away again, to a family in town, but she soon manages to get home to her Alps?and to share her happiness with her new friends.

My mother read this book to me when I was eight and bedfast with a long term illness. It helped me escape the loneliness and desolation of being unable to play with other children and explore the world on my own two feet. Heidi was my friend and a friend worth having. Her adventures on the mountain side became my world. That was sixty years ago and the memory still warms my heart.
