SeaWolf Press is proud to release another book in its collection of illustrated classic literature.  Fonts common 100 years ago are used and the format and illustrations from the first editions are reproduced—recreating the feeling of reading the original book when it was published.

Heidi is a work of children's fiction published in 1881 by Swiss author Johanna Spyri, originally published in two parts as Heidi: Her Years of Wandering and Learning and Heidi: How She Used What She Learned. This edition contains both parts. It is a novel about the events in the life of a 5-year-old girl in her paternal grandfather's care in the Swiss Alps. It was written as a book "for children and those who love children". Heidi is one of the best-selling books ever written and is among the best-known works of Swiss literature.

A nice edition containing both parts and with 34 illustrations by Jessie Wilcox Smith, 11 of them full page.
