‘Pollyanna,’ by Eleanor H. Porter, illustrated by Kate Hindley.

Another lovely edition of a children’s classic from Alma Junior. This time ‘Pollyanna’ gets their magic touch.


Pollyanna is a young orphan girl forced to move in with her strict aunt in New England. Although the two don’t get off to the best of starts, Pollyanna’s positive attitude affects everyone that she meets.

After tragedy strikes in the form of a traffic accident, Pollyanna finds her sunny disposition challenged but when the local community rally around her, she realises she has a lot more to be thankful for than she thought.

This special edition features a whole host of special additions for Pollyanna fans new and old. There’s an author profile, character list and test-yourself quiz for super-fans. Hindley’s fabulous illustrations add a beautiful touch as chapter headers throughout the book.

Make sure you play the ‘glad game.’   What do you have to be thankful for?

Library Girl.
