Heidi

    By

    At the age of six, little orphan Heidi is sent to live with her grandfather in the Alps. Everyone in the village is afraid of him, but Heidi - fascinated by his long beard and bushy grey eyebrows - takes to him immediately and soon earns his love in return. She adores her life in the mountains, playing in the sunshine and growing up among the goats and birds, but one terrible day Heidi is collected by her aunt and forced to live with a new family in town. Heartbroken by the loss of her Alpine life, she must do everything she can to return to her grandfather. Written as a book 'for children and those who love children', Johanna Spyri's affectionate account of Swiss mountain life is one of the bestselling books ever written, and a joyous portrait of the innocence of childhood. This Macmillan Collector's Library edition of Heidi is translated by Marian Edwardes and features charming line-drawn illustrations, and an afterword by editor Marcus Clapham. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much-loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
