Description

“The book is full of tears and laughter.” Audiofile

"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.
