About the Book

Heidi is a book of children's fiction published in 1881 by Swiss writer Johanna Spyri. It was initially published in two sections Heidi: Her years of wandering and learning and Heidi: How She Used What She Learned. It is a book about the incidents of the life of a 5-year-old girl in her concerned grandfather's care in the Swiss Alps, which describes the story of a little orphan girl, Heidi, who has been sent to stay with a lonely, irritating man at the highest point of a mountain in the Swiss Alps. This man is her grandfather. Heidi had been previously living with her Auntie Dete, but now Dete has been selected for a job in Frankfurt. The story also has five series that show Heidi as a grown-up, a mother, and, afterward, a grandmother, despite the fact that they were written after Spyri's death and involve her writings as inspiration.

About Author

Johanna Spyri

Johanna Spyri (June 12, 1827-July 7, 1901) was born in Switzerland. She was a Swiss author whose book for kids, Heidi, became famous all over the world. Her psychological insight into the minds of children, her wit, and her ability to enter into the childish joys and sorrows endow her book with charm and lasting value. After her marriage in 1852 to Bernhard Spyri, a lawyer engaged in editorial work, she moved to Zurich. Her adoration for her homeland, feeling for nature, humble devotion, and cheerful insight gave both her work and her life their interesting quality.
