First published in 1913, "Pollyanna" is Eleanor H. Porter's popular tale of youthful exuberance that has been cherished by young readers ever since its first publication. A classic of children's literature, "Pollyanna", is the story of its titular character, Pollyanna Whittier, a young orphaned girl who moves to the fictional town of Beldingsville, Vermont, to live with her cold and stern spinster Aunt Polly. Pollyanna's aunt is not keen towards the idea of having to take her in but does so anyway out of a sense of duty to her late sister, Pollyanna's mother. Pollyanna's eternal optimism arises out of a game she would play with her father in which they would try to find the good in all situations. Her sunny disposition soon begins to infect the otherwise dispirited New England town which she know calls home, transforming it into an increasingly pleasant place to live. However when tragedy strikes she is finally challenged with a situation in which she cannot be happy about and the townsfolk are called to rally to her side to help her regain her positive outlook on life. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper.
