Johanna Spyri’s classic tale is brought to life with beautiful illustrations from Maja Dusíková in what is sure to become a picture book classic! The story of Heidi is as fresh today as it was when it was written. It’s impossible not to love the little girl who scrambles through mountain meadows with the goats and Peter, brings joy (and soft rolls) to the blind grandmother and restores hope and love to Grandfather.
Illustrated with glowing watercolors by the internationally acclaimed artist Maja Dusíková, this beautiful classic is sure to become a favorite.
The text in this picture-book version of the story flows smoothly while incorporating many incidents from the original. Dusíková's watercolor illustrations feature rosy-cheeked children, cuddly goats, and flowering hillside pastures.

It never sacrifices heart for succinct storytelling...Dusíková taps into the emotional core of this tale, making it accessible to all but the youngest readers.
The text is a crisp, well-flowing synopsis of the tale, hitting all the key plot points with the result a picture book that's a hair longer than what's typical in the genre. And the soft illustrations capture in an exquisitely lovely way everything from Heidi's straw bed to the goats on a high cliff to the Frankfurt skyline, in a manner that will be appreciated by elementary-aged readers...
