Heidi is a little girl whose parents have died, so she is taken to live with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps. He is a gruff old man who is very grumpy and cold when Heidi arrives, but gradually, she wins him over. She lives very happily in the mountains, playing and tending sheep with her new friend Peter, but then someone comes to take her to a boarding school. She is miserable there, though she does make friends with the other girl she has lessons with and encourages her. Still, she just wants to go home to her grandfather.
