Publisher's Summary

Orphaned Heidi lives with her gruff but caring grandfather on the side of Swiss mountain, where she befriends young Peter the goat-herd. She leads an idyllic life, until she is forced to leave the mountain she has always known to go and live with a sickly girl in the city. Will Heidi ever see her grandfather again? A classic tale of a young girl's coming-of-age, of friendship, and familial love, Heidi has inspired countless dramatic versions, both on TV and in film, including Shirley Temple's famous 1937 version.


Audible Editor Reviews

In 1937, movie audiences in the midst of the Great Depression thrilled to Shirley Temple’s version of Heidi, the classic tale of a young orphan who is trying to find her way back to her beloved grandfather high in the Swiss Alps. Listeners who remember that film - in which the California mountains stand in for the Alps - will be delighted to hear Frances Cassidy’s sweet performance of Johanna Spyri’s beautifully written account of that magical land and that heart-warming saga of intergenerational devotion. Heidi is one of the best-selling - and best loved - children’s stories of all time.
