Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This retelling of Heidi's story is charming and accessible to younger readers. Heidi has come to live with her grandfather in the mountains. Everything is new and exciting — the wind in the fir trees, the pretty Alpine flowers, Peter and his goats, and most of all, Grandfather. Life on the mountain is beautiful, but it doesn't last forever. Heidi is taken to the big city of Frankfurt, where she becomes a companion to a little girl called Clara. How different life in this rich household is! Heidi does not know how to behave in the city and longs to go back to her mountain home. A classic story of a child's growing understanding of the world, Johanna Spyri's Heidi is especially engaging in this Young Classic edition because children can see what Heidi's life was really like. Photography sets the scene without intruding on the story and brings Heidi to life for a new generation of children.

About the Author

Johanna Spyri (1827-1901) was born in the Swiss village of Hirzel. as a child, she lived a healthy outdoor life, tending the family goats and sometimes helping her doctor father look after his patients. she later settled in Zurich and began to write to raise money for wounded refugees. Heidi, published in 1880, quickly became a beloved children's classic all around the world. Sally Grindley began writing for children in 1984 while working for a children's book club and is now the author of many acclaimed picture books. Her lively retelling of Heidi retains the feeling of the original, while making it easily accessible to young children. She lives in Gloucestershire, England, with her family. Pamela Venus is a parent and grandmother. she most enjoys illustrating books for and about children, her chosen career from the age of five. she lives and works in a cottage in north Yorkshire, England.
