The Japanese animated series Heidi, Girl of the Alps, is an adaptation of the 1880 novel Heidi’s Years of Wandering and Learning by the Swiss author Johanna Spryri. It is a great classical children’s book. Little Heidi lost her parents when she was just one year old, and has been raised by her aunt Dete since then. But when Heidi turns 5, her aunt finds a job in Frankfurt and decides to leave the little girl with her grandfather in the mountains. It’s very difficult for the solitary grandfather to show love and affection, but after some time Heidi completely wins him over with her kindness and her intelligence. Heidi also becomes best friends with the goatherd Peter, with whom she spends countless hours roaming the mountain tops.
