What happens when a little orphan girl is forced to live with her cold and frightening grandfather? The heartwarming answer has engaged children for more than a century, both on the page and on the screen. Johanna Spyri’s beloved story offers youngsters an endearing and intelligent heroine, a cast of unique and memorable characters, and a fascinating portrait of a small Alpine village.
I cannot believe that I never knew about this book when I was a kid. I cannot believe I waited so long before I finally read it. This innocent little tale is full of messages that are relevant even today . I wish I was a kid again and the innocence and the untainted love were my weapons as well. Oh! I cannot tell you how much I loved this tale. I am sure I will read this to my little one someday. I am so buying this book for my kids to savour.
Highly recommended, if you have not already read it :)
