To be honest this was on my list to nominate as I loved this story. I used to read my Mum's copy when I was younger, a beautiful book with a few colour prints in. I also read Mum's Heidi Grows Up and Heidi's Children.
I was delighted when Justine announced her choice and even more delighted to re-read those old copies. Hubby kindly ventured into the attic and retrieved all three books - they are well loved and smell of my childhood..... it's a pleasure to be reading them again.
|My Mum's copy of Heidi|
|Beautiful inside cover - Heidi getting into bed in the cabin|
and Clara in her finery
|Heidi and her Grandfather - one of the superb colour prints in the book|
|This colour print is such fun - one of my|
favourites in the book
|The lovely goatherd Peter|
|Heidi Grows Up - not such an ornate book |
but loved just the same
|The detail in the colour prints is amazing in this book too|
|The third book of Heidi|
|The inside cover pencil print, I'd love to live near mountains|
|Heidi, Peter and the Children|
Thank you so much Justine, I really have revisited my childhood with these books, in more ways than just the stories.
