About The Book

A bright, illustrated retelling of the classic children's tale!

Based on one of the most best-selling books ever written, this hopeful feel-good tale is inspiring for all who read it. Long ago, before the Shirley Temple movie, orphaned Heidi was sent to live in the mountains with her grandfather. She is incredibly happy there and spends her days running through the fields, helping her friend Peter tend to the goats. One day, however, her aunt comes and takes her to a large house at the bottom of the mountain, where she could assist with the owner’s daughter, the sickly, wheelchair-bound Clara, and receive an education. Clara and Heidi become fast friends, but Heidi soon becomes sick with stress and worry for being away from her beloved mountain and grandfather. Clara and her father bring Heidi back to her beloved grandfather, who suggests Clara stay with them as well, to see if the fresh mountain air could help with her illness.
