Brought to you by Puffin. As soon as Pollyanna arrives in Beldingsville to live with her strict and dutiful maiden aunt, she begins to brighten up everybody's life. The 'glad game' she plays, of finding a silver lining in every cloud, transforms the sick, the lonely and the plain miserable - until one day something so terrible happens that even Pollyanna doesn't know how to feel glad about it. (c) Eleanor Porter 1994 (P) Penguin Audio 2020
Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure. With its wonderfully infectious good cheer, Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter spawned a real-life 'Glad' movement and endures today as a true classic of children's literature. This elegant Macmillan Collector's Library edition features an afterword by children's book critic Imogen Russell Williams. When her beloved father dies, Pollyanna is sent to live with her strict Aunt Polly in the dour town of Beldingsville, Vermont. Luckily, Pollyanna has the Glad Game - a joyous, warm-hearted exercise where she finds the best in every situation. Whether delighting in the view from her bare attic room, or interpreting her punishment of a meagre supper as a wonderful treat, Pollyanna cannot help but see the best in the world, and inadvertently changes it for the better as she goes.
Perhaps many will consider this book to be written for young readers, however, there are many things to learn for adults as well. 'Pollyanna' is a kind and bright book that helps to look at some life moments more positively. The best-selling book by Elinor Porter outlines the amazing story of an orphaned girl, who from a "e;sense of duty"e; was taken to her stern aunt. Under all circumstances Pollyanna prefers to enjoy her life which helps not only her but also people surrounding her. Undoubtedly, the reader will also be attracted by almost detective twists and turns of the plot of the book.
