Heidi by Johanna Spyri
Heidi by Johanna Spyri An orphaned girl named Heidi is sent to live with her grandfather by her Aunt Dete, who has been looking after Heidi since she was a baby. Heidi's grandfather initially dislikes having Heidi around because she interferes in his routine. But when grandfather hurts his leg, Heidi helps nurse him back to health, and during this time the two bond together. Heidi's Aunt Dete arrives one day to take Heidi away again, saying that a wealthy family in Frankfurt want Heidi to come live with them. Heidi's grandfather reluctantly lets her go. Peter and the country animals come to Heidi's rescue. Together with Klara, the three travel to the Wunderhorn without telling Rottenmeier. At this time, Klara's father returns to Frankfurt after being away on business, and is angered that his daughter has disappeared. He immediately leaves for the Wunderhorn, and in this time Rottenmeier and the butler Sebastian take the opportunity to flee.
