    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.

    Made me feel like i was there

    When i read Heidi i felt like i was in Heidi' s world. I could feel it when the author described the mornings in the montains. The fresh scents, and the sunrise. Although this book had no main point i really liked it. This book makes me feel at home with the fireplace on making me feel warm and cozy. There are no unbearably sad parts or scary parts in this book. Good read for mos t all ages - very heartwarming.

    Truly touching! I Loved it! I love reading. Excellent and charming book! Must Read!

    I loved this book! I rad it nearly 10 times, and I never got tired. I felt like wringing Miss Rottenmier's neck. Her name suits her real well. Heidi's sweet and loving nature wins her grandfather's heart. I'd reccomond this book to everyone

    'The Best Feeling Book Ever'

    I loved the adventures and the dramatic feelings in this book. I also love how carefree and happy Heidi is. Even though everyone thinks that uncle alp is cruel and a horrible man, he is so sweet and caring for Heidi. I love this book because everything turns out to be wonderful for everyone!!! The book Heidi is an inspiration to me!!!

    Beautiful story.

    I already own a copy of his wonderful book, but bought it on here to use it to write for an english essay, so that I can highlight and write notes in it, unlike my fifty year old edition. When I opened the book, however, I found that the translation of this edition is vastly different from my older edition. In this, some convorsations were condensed, summerised, or simply not there at all, and the descriptions were far less potent. While reading this book the first time with my old edition, small though I was, I loved it so much, remembering how the wonderous descriptions of the beautiful alps transported me there, made me see it as if I were really there. When I recently reread Heidi, I experienced the same feeling, but did not get as much of a sense of that with this edition. In the end, I decided that I would much rather use my beautiful edition of Heidi despite not being able to take it to school or even put sticky notes in it for fear of it breaking than have to get used to the mew version.
