The beloved story of an orphaned girl living in the Swiss Alps is now available in an unabridged, illustrated cloth hardcover edition in Union Square and Co.’s Children's Signature Clothbound Classics series.

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, makes new friends, and brightens her grandfather’s life. Then Heidi is taken away to serve as a companion to a lonely girl. Will she ever get back to the mountains and people she loves so much?

Johanna Spyri (1827–1901) was born Johanna Louise Heusser in Hirzel, Switzerland. In 1852, she moved to Zurich, where she began to write stories about life in the country. Although she wrote more than fifty stories before passing away, Johanna Spyri is best known for Heidi, the story of an orphan who goes to live with her grandfather on the mountain.
