A beautifully illustrated edition of Johanna Spyri's endearing classic of children's fiction.

About the Author

Johanna Louise Spyri was born in Hirzel, Switzerland on 12 June 1827. The daughter of a country doctor, she was one of six children. The family later moved to Zürich where the young Johanna went to school, studying languages and piano. She married a lawyer, Bernhard Spyri, in 1852 and they had one child, Bernard, who was born in 1855. Johanna began writing in earnest in 1871, with her many stories often featuring the idyllic Swiss countryside of her childhood. Her beloved children's novel Heidi was published in 1881 and has become one of the bestselling books of all time. Following the tragic deaths of her husband and child in 1884, Spyri devoted herself to writing and charity work, completing over fifty more stories before her death in Zürich on 7 July 1901.
