Little Orphan Heidi

Heidi by Johanna Spyri is an inspiring story about a girl who lives in the 1800's in Germany. Heidi is a five year old orphan who has been living with her aunt for most of her life. When her aunt gets a job in Frankkfurt, she takes Heidi to live with her grandfather in the little village called Dorfli. Heidi's grandfather is said to be a very mean man that frightens many people. Heidi must face her grandfather alone.
Heidi is a cheerful girl and she tries her best to be friendly with her grandfather. She soon begins to worm her way into his old heart and many of the other villagers in Dorfli. She makes friends with almost everyone she meets. She even gets her grandfather to come down from his mountain to be around the villagers that he separated himself from years ago. Around Heidi's 8th birthday,her aunt comes back to take Heidi to Frankfurt where there is a girl named Klara who is in a wheelchair and is in need of a companion. Heidi is very sad to have to leave her mountains and her grandfather, but she goes anyway.
Heidi has many adventures with Klara and even begins to like being in Frankfurt, but she still misses the mountains. Everyday she begs to go home. Finally, they send her back to live with her grandfather in her beloved mountains.
Heidi by Johanna Spyri is a classic children's story loved by many people. I would recommend this book because it was very enjoyable and I learned a lot. Even though Heidi was kind of thrown around and sometimes not wanted, she still stayed positive and tried to be as nice as possible. This is a great story about an orphan who goes on many adventures and gets through them with her head held high.

    This is the most boring book that I have ever read!

    I am a book-worm who loves to read and loves books but I hated this one.It was so boring that I couldent even get through the first few paragraphs!So, I havent actually read this whole book because it would be to hard for me!This book is so bland.The only thing that I like about this book is the setting in the Swiss Mountains.

    Great pictures, but NOT unabridged

    Great pictures and background information similar to a DK book, but the publisher says it's complete and unabridged, and this simply is not true. Just compare the number of pages, number of chapters, or more importantly the rich sentences in the original versus this series.

    Fabulous

    My mom gave me all her old books and Heidi happen to be one of the books that she gave me and I loved it. I really didn't like the other ones she gave me because they were just about there life back then and how they lived. They had really no point. Such as:Little house on the prairie.(so boring)This book actually gave some life to it. I cried once though (don't tell). It was sad and happy and well just read it and you will know why this was such a good book. My advise to you READ THIS BOOK!
