Description

When Heidi's parents pass away, her aunt takes her in, but she soon sends Heidi to live with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps. At first, Heidi's grandfather seems gruff, but over time he becomes fond of her. Heidi grows to love the mountains and spends many hours with the goats and Peter, the goatherd, until she is sent to back to the city to be a companion to Clara, an invalid, and receive an education. Heidi learns that though the people in the city have more money, the people in the country lead richer lives. This classic Swiss children's book by Johanna Spyri was published in two parts in 1880 and 1881. This unabridged version comes from a 1915 edition, translated from the original German by Elisabeth P. Stork and illustrated by Maria L. Kirk.

        September 2, 1996
        This truncated retelling of orphan Heidi's simple life in the Swiss Alps and her sojourn in the big city seems almost as indebted to the Shirley Temple film as to Johanna Spyri's 1880 novel. Krupinski's (A New England Scrapbook) heroine mimics Temple, curls, button nose and all, though she lacks the actress's expressive smile and gestures. Similarly blank-faced characters contrast with Krupinski's serene, lushly idealized landscape paintings: the people seem like wax dolls, but the glowing blankets of flowers make the Alps heaven on earth. The text emphasizes the sensual joys of fresh goat's milk, fir trees "with their piney scent," Heidi's sweet-smelling bed in her grandfather's hay loft, etc., but that is its only demonstrable strength. Both Heidi's relationship with her grandfather and the idealized subplot about wheelchair-bound Klara's learning to walk are woodenly described; little space is given to dialogue and even less to Heidi's emotions. The plot, too, is severely condensed: "Many more good things happened after that day." The book succeeds as a portrayal of the joys of mountain life, but otherwise fails to do justice to Spyri's story of a girl's courage and persistence. Ages 5-9.
