Unrated Critic Reviews for Heidi


Her misery in the city, the middle third of the book, is vivid as well, and readers long with Heidi to get back to the healthy, sun-filled mountains.

Heidi's life on the mountain is vivid and joyous, told with such resonance that children who have the temperament and experience to be able to listen to a story of this length and pacing dream of living in the Alps themselves.
