Johanna Spyri had written the book, Heidi 'for children and those who love children". It is a novel about the events in the life of a young spirited girl called Heidi. She lives with her gruff grandfather in the picturesque Swiss Alps. Heidi lives an idyllic life until she is forcefully taken to Frankfurt by her aunt to be a companion to an invalid girl. Will she be able to return home? What will become of the invalid girl and her family? This story speaks about the joy of sharing and helping those in need, the magnificent beauty of nature and the importance of prayer. A charming story that has been an all-time favourite.
