Heidi cannot bear being away from the mountains and is determined to return to the happiness of life with her grandfather. With a delightfully nostalgic introduction by award-winning author, Eva Ibbotson.
When we read we gain a great story but we also peek into other cultures, traditions and lifestyles. These Puffin Classics cleverly help open that door to peek inside. These editions include the full story text of each classic along with much more. Each book includes an introduction, but at the back is where you'll find the bonus features. In approximately 15 pages of additional material, you'll find an author profile, a guide to characters, Things to Do, Things to Think About, further investigations into specifics for that book (get a tour on the Hispaniola or delve into a Victorian Christmas, for example) and activities. Black line drawings are sprinkled throughout. 5" x 7", sc. ~ Ruth
