This is a timeless classic expressing the universal message that every aspect of life should be looked at in a positive way. It follows the actions of its protagonist, eleven-year old Pollyanna who goes to live with her stern Aunty Polly, where she faces many challenges with a smile on her face. The best-selling novel begins with the introduction of Pollyanna who goes to live in Vermont with her strict Aunt Polly after the death of her parents which have left her an orphan. The young heroine refuses to give in to her seemingly gloomy situation and instead chooses to look at the bright side of things. Pollyanna's adjustment to her new surroundings is determined by her optimistic philosophical approach to life, which she refers to as "The Glad Game". A game taught to her by her father, it has one simple rule- to find the silver lining in every cloud, and find a reason to be glad in every situation whilst withstanding any obstacle life viciously throws. Soon after her arrival, the little girl encourages others to join her in her game and change their previous gloomy attitude. Among the new players is the bad tempered, old Mrs. Snow, and the withdrawn John Pendleton. The townspeople are quick to welcome the unrelenting cheerful girl into their lives, even as she must confront and overcome her own challenges. Although Pollyanna is considered a children's novel, it is in fact intended to be enjoyed by all ages. As it explores themes of rejection, deprivation and illness, the novel relates to a wide audience. Porter offers an enlightening journey into the world of a child's innocence, whose positive energy has the mystical power to alleviate even the bleakest social and personal circumstances. With a good storyline and a positive message, Pollyanna is an inspiration to many never to give up on life. Includes unique illustrations.
