When Pollyanna was published in 1913, it became an overnight success. It immediately sold over a million copies as young and old alike fell in love with the little freckled orphan girl and her spirited optimism.

Many of Beldingsville’s citizens are ill, misguided, and even despairing. The sparkling, ingenuous eleven-year-old who descends upon them with her “glad game” gives them renewed hope and changes their lives forever. Then unexpected tragedy strikes, and Pollyanna can no longer find the silver lining in any cloud. Can a child’s suffering possibly serve any purpose?

Eleanor Hodgman Porter (1868–1920), American novelist, was born at Littleton, New Hampshire, and studied music at the New England Conservatory. 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. A sequel, Pollyanna Grows Up, was published in 1915, and two volumes of short stories, The Tangled Threads and Across the Years, appeared posthumously in 1924.
