Heidi, one of the best classic kidlit books of English language is a wonderful story. It is about an orphan little girl named Heidi who is brought up by her maternal aunt, until Heidi is four. When her aunt gets a good job, she leaves her in her uncle's house.She is very happy in the beautiful Swiss Alps. Her only kid companion is a herds boy named Peter.
But after sometime, her aunt comes back and takes her away to Frankfurt again, where Heidi is sent to school for the first time. She is very unhappy with the new city life and becomes very thin and sickly. She also meets Clara there. But for her health, the doctor advises that she must go back to the mountains to get well. She is extremely happy to live with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps again.
It is truly a beautiful story. It is best for young readers.
Have a good time reading!!!
