Heidi is a little Swiss orphan girl. When she is five years old, she is taken by her aunt to live with her grandfather. His home is high up on the mountain slopes; he has quarrelled with those who live down below in the village, where he is known as "Uncle Alp". Grandfather and Heidi get on very well together, and she settles happily into her new home.
When Heidi is eight years old, her aunt, who is working in Frankfurt, Germany, comes to see her. She takes Heidi to live in Frankfurt as a companion to a twelve-year-old girl called Clara Sesemann, who is unable to walk.
Clara, her father, and her Grandmamma all become very fond of the little Swiss girl. Will the little girl return to her grandfather again?
This book is rewritten from "Heidi" by Johanna Spyri, a Swiss-born author of novels and best known for her children's stories. "Heidi" is her best-known book and about 20 film or television productions of the original story have been made.
