The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

Hundreds and hundreds of thousands of children have asked: Whatever became of little Heidi when she grew up? Did she go to school in Dörfli, or did she stay with the grandfather in his little cottage high up on the Alm of the Swiss Alps? And did Klara, whom Heidi had encouraged to walk again when everyone else had lost hope, come back as she had promised? And what of Peter, the goatherd, and the dear, blind old grandmother, and the good doctor who had offered Heidi his home, and Brigitte? And what became of Schwänli and Bärli, the goats who loved Heidi quite as much as everyone else in Dörfli?

Do you remember that the last chapter of Heidi was called, "Parting to Meet Again"? Well, Johanna Spyri's translator has written the book in which we meet again the people we knew and loved so well and in this new book about Heidi, written with the same charm and delightfulness of the old, you will find many adventures and surprises and a happy ending in which her fondest dreams are realized.
