Heidi - whose life is transformed when she is sent to live with her stern grandfather in the Swiss Alps - also joyfully transforms the lives of others - her grandfather's, of course, as well as that of Peter the goatherd and his granny. Teresa Gallagher performs all these roles and more with an astonishing range; her Heidi is girlish, bubbling, and impetuous, her Peter terse and sometimes sulky. Gallagher moves smoothly between these voices and then back to that of the narrator, never missing a beat. This carefully abridged version includes all one's favorite parts and invites younger and older listeners alike to enjoy this classic children's tale. A word of caution: Your children may want to eat nothing but bread, cheese, and goat's milk for days after listening.

Publisher's Summary

The evergreen tale of the Swiss orphan girl Heidi has charmed and intrigued readers since its original publication in 1880.

Heidi comes to live with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps where she befriends the animals and children, in particular the goatherd Peter. She is later taken away to the stern and confining home of the invalid Clara where she enriches the lives of those around her but longs to return home. After many adventures she returns to her grandfather's cabin in her beloved Alps.
