From the cover: “THE publication of the book Heidi Grows Up, which every young reader knows is the sequel to Johanna Spyri’s famous story of Heidi, brought many hundreds of letters to the author demanding to know whether Heidi, now married to Peter and living happily in the good doctor’s great manor-house in Dorfli, ever had any little children of her own.
So in this new volume we are told not only of the beautiful twins who arrived to bless that joyous home just at the time the strawberry blossoms were abloom on the mountain meadows, but also of unhappy, troubled little Marta who came there to live.
How Heidi helps Marta to find happiness and understanding, and how together they solve the strange mystery behind the life of the old Aim-Uncle, makes a warm and tender and altogether exciting story which children of all ages the world over will enjoy.”
