About The Book

Johanna Spyri's classic tale is brought to life with beautiful illustrations from Maja Dusíková in what is sure to become a picture book classic! The story of Heidi is as fresh today as it was when it was written. It’s impossible not to love the little girl who scrambles through mountain meadows with the goats and Peter, brings joy (and soft rolls) to the blind grandmother and restores hope and love to Grandfather. Published in cooperation with the esteemed Swiss publisher NordSüd and illustrated with glowing watercolors by the internationally acclaimed artist Maja Dusíková, this beautiful classic is sure to become a favorite. Translated by Marian Edwardes.

Heidi’s Years of Wandering and Learning, usually abbreviated as Heidi, is by far the most well known.
