Item description for Pollyanna: Complete and Unabridged (Puffin Classics) by Eleanor H. Porter & Neil Reed...

When a twelve-year-old orphan comes to live with her austere and wealthy Aunt Polly, her philosophy of gladness brings happiness to the aunt and unloved members of the community.

Publishers Description
As soon as Pollyanna arrives in Beldingsville to live with her strict and dutiful maiden aunt, she begins to brighten up everybody's life. The "glad game" she plays, of finding a silver lining in every cloud, transforms the sick, the lonely and the plain miserable -- until one day something so terrible happens that even Pollyanna doesn't know how to feel glad about it.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pollyanna: Complete and Unabridged (Puffin Classics)?

pollyana= a wonderful book  Apr 29, 2008
i think this book is wonderful i`m sure that anyone who reads this will really enjoy it
A joy to revisit.  Apr 28, 2008
I grew up with Walt Disney's story of Pollyanna. I still have the LP record album of the movie soundtrack. But I was pleasantly surprised to read the original story and find such depth of character and meaning. I highly recommend this delightful book.
A memorable cultural icon  Oct 27, 2007
This was part of my cultural icons search. I wanted to know what people meant when they called someone a 'Pollyanna.' I loved this hopeful, Christian character. She changed so many people's lives, and turned so many hearts just by thinking about things for which to be grateful. The book is much better than the Disney movie. I also loved Pollyanna Grows Up (Puffin Classics)

These books definitely belong among my 10 favorite children's books of all time.
Pollyanna  Jan 10, 2007
You've heard "Pollyanna" forever and think you know what it means. But, unless you've read the book, you don't. Yes, Pollyanna is an optimist - but not blindly. This delightful, loving girl creatively and courageously looks for the good beneath the bad, sad or depressing. Key here (which most don't know or leave out): she first sees and experiences the negative. She does not ignore it. She herself is tested in the end and fails at her usual optimism for months before finally finding the vision and willingness to hope again. A wonderful book for young and old alike. Last year I gave it to my 12-year-old niece for her birthday - and read it myself for the first time. This year I gave it to everyone on my Christmas list - to create a fabulous Pollyanna world. Will you join?
Do try it! You'll be glad you did  May 4, 2006
Much has been said which needs no repetition, suffice it to say I love this story as I love Lad: A Dog, Rascal & The Black Stallion. It captures the elegance of the early 20th century as do the first two, & is as warm & loving as all three.

That said, why do I post my thoughts? Besides doing what little I may to improve the rating, I have an especial affinity for this book. My copy is my grandmothers, a 25th printing from 1915. Grammy was born not far from Eleanor Porter's home town of Littleton. In some way they were aquainted & she instilled in grammy a life long love of books, reading & english that was passed to me. I just wanted to thank them for showing me how to be glad, & I believe you'll be glad too.
