    Johanna Spyri, best known for her iconic Heidi, sends another young heroine into the world, this time to face the challenges of adulthood and professional life.

    Heidi (1881) is a novel written by Swiss author Johanna Spyri. It is one of the best-selling books of all time, not only a defining work of Swiss literature, but a beloved masterpiece of children's fiction. When an aunt drops five-year-old Heidi off to live with her grandfather in the Alps-the two of them alone in a small hut on a hill-she's initially very lonely. Soon, however, she comes to appreciate her new, simple life; she loves walking through the pastures with her friend Peter the goatherd and spending quiet time with her grandfather. Three years later, Heidi's aunt returns to take her to the town to become a companion for Clara, a sick little girl of a wealthy family. But even though Heidi bonds with Clara and brings new life to the household, she becomes more and more homesick and wants desperately to return to her grandfather.Since its original publication in Switzerland in 1880, Johanna Spyri's classic story has delighted generations of children. The book has been translated into more than fifty languages and has sold over fifty million copies. A classic tale of a young girl's coming-of-age, of friendship, and familial love, the story has inspired countless dramatic versions, both on TV and in film, including Shirley Temple's famous 1937 version.

    Heimatlos / Geschichten fur Kinder und auch fur solche, welche die / Kinder lieb haben, 1. Band - Johanna Spyri - Im Ober-Engadin, an der Strae gegen den Maloja hinauf, liegt ein einsames Dorfchen, das heit Sils. Da geht man von der Strae querfeldein, und hinten, ganz nahe an den Bergen, liegt ein kleiner Ort, der heit Sils-Maria. Da standen zwei Hauschen einander gegenuber, ein wenig abseits im Felde. Die hatten beide uralte holzerne Hausturen und ganz kleine Fenster tief in der Mauer drinnen. Beim einen Haus war ein kleines Stuck Garten, da wuchs Kraut und Kohl und es standen auch vier Blumenstocke darin, die sahen aber mager aus und aufgeschossen wie das Kraut. Beim anderen Hauschen war gar nichts als ein kleiner Stall neben der Tur; da krochen zwei Huhner aus und ein. Dies Hauschen war noch ziemlich kleiner als das andere, und die holzerne Tur war schwarz vor Alter.Aus dieser Tur trat jeden Morgen um dieselbe Zeit ein groer Mann, der mute sich bucken, um hinauszukommen. Der groe Mann hatte ganz glanzend schwarze Haare und schwarze Augen, und unter der schon geformten Nase fing gleich ein so dichter, schwarzer Bart an, da man vom ubrigen Gesichte nichts mehr sah als die weien Zahne, die zwischen den Barthaaren durchblitzten, wenn der Mann einmal sprach; aber er sprach sehr wenig. Alle Leute in Sils kannten den Mann, aber niemand nannte ihn bei einem Namen, er hie bei allen nur der Italiener Er ging regelmaig den schmalen Weg queruber gegen Sils hin und den Maloja hinauf.

    Erick and Sally Johanna Spyri - The sun was shining so brightly through the foremost windows of the old schoolhouse in Upper Wood, that the children of the first and second classes appeared as if covered with gold. They looked at one another, all with beaming faces, partly because the sun made them appear so, and partly for joy; for when the sunshine came through the last window, then the moment approached that the closing word would be spoken, and the children could rush out into the evening sunshine. The teacher was still busy with the illuminated heads of the second class, and indeed with some zeal, for several sentences had still to be completed, before the school could be closed. The teacher was standing before a boy who looked well-fed and quite comfortable, and who was looking up into the teachers face with eyes as round as two little balls...

    Heidi illustrated Johanna Spyri - Fully illustrated. Heidi is a novel about the events in the life of a young girl in her grandfather's care, in the Swiss Alps. Heidi is an orphaned girl initially raised by her aunt Dete in Maienfeld, Switzerland after the early deaths of her parents, Tobias and Adelheid (Dete's sister and brother-in-law). Dete brings 6-year-old Heidi to her paternal grandfather's house, up the mountain from Dorfli. He has been at odds with the villagers and embittered against God for years and lives in seclusion on the alm. This has earned him the nickname Alm-Uncle. He briefly resents Heidi's arrival, but the girl's evident intelligence and cheerful yet unaffected demeanor soon earn his genuine, if reserved, affection. Heidi enthusiastically befriends her new neighbors, young Peter the goatherd, his mother, Bridgget, and his blind maternal grandmother. With each season that passes, the mountaintop inhabitants grow more attached to Heidi. Heidi is one of the best-selling books ever written and is among the best-known works of Swiss literature.

    Cornelli Johanna Spyri - Many writers have suffered injustice in being known as the author of but one book. Such has been the fate of Johanna Spyri, the Swiss authoress, whose reputation is mistakenly supposed to rest on her story of Heidi. To be sure, Heidi is a book that in its field can hardly be overpraised. But the present story is possessed of a deeper treatment of character, combined with equal spirit and humor of a different kind. Cornelli, the heroine, suffers temporarily from the unjust suspicion of her elders, a misfortune which, it is to be feared, still occurs frequently in the case of sensitive children.
