When Heidi’s parents die and she can no longer live with her aunt, she must stay with her ill-tempered grandfather, who lives alone in the Swiss Alps. Heidi thrives in the mountains as she plays with the mountain goats, picks wildflowers, and makes new friends. Then Heidi is taken away to serve as a companion to a lonely girl. Will she ever get back to the mountains she loves so much?
This heartwarming tale is now available in a collectible hardcover edition, complete with black-and-white interior illustrations that bring the story to life.
