Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Five-year-old Heidi, an orphan, has been sent to live with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps. All of his neighbors fear him, but Heidi knows he is kind at heart, and the two learn to live happily together. Heidi loves her life, but soon her aunt takes her away and forces Heidi to work for strangers in town as a companion to their handicapped daughter, Clara. Heidi befriends Clara and begins to learn to read and write, but she is also homesick for her grandfather and best friend, a goat-herd. Will she ever make it back to her beloved mountain home?

Johanna Spyri's classic tale has been adapted into an easy-reading Stepping Stones format, while keeping all the love, friendship, and adventure of the original book.

Synopsis:

The story of Heidi was written over one hundred years ago, however, it is far from a period piece. In the Swiss Alps, where it is set, a hundred years is just the blink of an eye. We see in her the daughter that every mother dreams of having and every little girl dreams of being. Her presence makes us happy, and so her story has endured. This deluxe Childrens Classic edition is produced with high-quality, leatherlike binding with gold stamping, full-color covers, colored endpapers with a book nameplate. Some of the other titles in this series include: Anne of Green Gables, Black Beauty, King Arthur and His Knights, Little Women, and The Secret Garden.

From the Hardcover edition.
