Published in 1916, this story by Eleanor Porter (author of Pollyanna) is about a British orphan comes down from a mountain into a village. With his unique views and ideas, how will he be accepted?
Miss Polly, a rich spinster, and most of the town of Beldingsville, are in for a lot of surprises, when Miss Polly's orphaned niece, Pollyanna arrives. Eleven-year-old Pollyanna always tries to find something to be "glad" about, no matter what turns life takes. Her naive ways create some humorous situations. The time comes, however, when Pollyanna finds her staunchly positive outlook tested in a way she never would have imagined.
Pollyanna's eternal optimism has made her one of the most beloved characters in American literature. First published in 1913, her story spawned the formation of "Glad" clubs all over the country, devoted to playing Pollyanna's famous game. Pollyanna has since sold over one million copies, been translated into several languages, and has become both a Broadway play and a Disney motion picture.
