First published in 1881 by Swiss author Johanna Spyri in two parts: Heidi's years of learning and travel (German: Heidis Lehr- und Wanderjahre) and Heidi makes use of what she has learned (German: Heidi kann brauchen, was es gelernt hat). It is a novel about the events in the life of a young girl in her grandfather's care, in the Swiss Alps, written as a book "for children and those who love children" (as quoted from its subtitle).
