Not clear if this book is the real thing or an condensed version because the descriptions say both. The second Heidi listed appears to be condensed because a second author is listed.

This is not the FULL original version of the book. Might work if you want just a short story for young children.

Heidi is a little girl of five years when her mother's sister, Dete, takes her to her uncle's hut because her parents have died and Dete is going to Frankfurt. Heidi is eight years old when Dete tells her she has to go to Frankfurt because Clara, a girl in a wheelchair, needs some company.

I like this book very much. It has lots of information about what's happening in the story (it's very detailed).
