| The story of Heidi has fascinated many across the world. It is a heart warming story of a little orphan girl, who lives in the mountains with her grandfather. The story begins when five year old Heidi is taken to live with her grandfather by her aunt, Detie. The old man (grandfather) is very reluctant to let Heidi stay with him, but gradually he develops a fond liking for her & later it is shown that they both share a very close relationship with each oher.
Heidi gets used to life up in the mountains. She regularly visits the pastures with Peter, the goatherd & his goats. They become very good friends. Peter lives in a small hut with his mother & blind grandmother. Heidi also shares a close relationship with Peter's family. Everything goes well until, Heidis aunt Detie arrives out of nowhere & takes Heidi away to Frankfurt (Germany). There she lives with a rich family which includes an invalid girl Clara & the strict housekeeper, Miss Rottenmier. There Heidi learns how to read & write (something which she never learnt before)with the help of Clara's grandma. But Heidi is homesick & that is why she is sent home. Eventually Clara visit's the Alps & learns to walk with the help of Heidi, her grandfather & Peter. This is a beautiful story that will really make you laugh & cry. If you haven't read the book I suggest you read it. I have no idea if the television series are shown or not. But if it is ever shown then don't miss it. Trust me, you will not be sorry. Bye.
