“Oh, Aunt Polly, I don’t know how to be glad enough that you let me come to live with you!”

As soon as the orphaned Pollyanna arrives in Beldingsville to live with her strict and dutiful maiden aunt, she begins to brighten up everybody’s life. The sick, the lonely, and the just plain miserable all fall under her spell and are transformed—until one day something so terrible happens that even Pollyanna doesn’t know how to feel glad any more.

First published in 1913, the tale of Pollyanna and the “glad game,” the game of finding a silver lining in every cloud, is one of the most popular and enduring children's stories of all time.

    " This book never fails to put me in a good mood. I know that Pollyanna is somewhat over the top and definitely unrealistic, but so what? She's absolutely adorable and utterly charming which makes for wonderful reading and the perfect comfort book :) "

    " Every little (and big) girl should read this...I love to see how a father influenced his daughter to change a disappointment into a defining moment in her life, and how our naivete, which sometimes we are so quick to shed, can often be one of our best sources of power... "

Her first novels included Cross Currents (1907) and Miss Billy (1911). In 1913 Pollyanna appeared, which was an immediate success that has retained its popularity ever since.
