About the book

Be transported to the Swiss Alps with this classic story of a young girl who has the ability to soften the hardest of hearts.
Originally published in 1881,  Heidi  tells the story of a five-year old orphaned girl whose aunt brings her to live with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps. The residents of the nearby town fear Heidi's grandfather because he lives in seclusion, but she gradually opens his heart with her youth and energy. When she turns eight, her aunt returns to take her away. Heidi makes the most of her situation, teaching timeless lessons to her grandfather and her friends, as well as to generations of readers. With illustrations by Jessie Wilcox Smith, this beautiful, vibrant clothbound hardcover is unabridged and makes a great addition to every child's library.
The Knickerbocker Classics bring together the essential works of classic authors from around the world in stunning editions to be collected and enjoyed.
