When optimistic orphan Pollyanna is sent to live with her stern Aunt Polly in the dismal town of Beldingsville, the sweet-natured eleven year old relies on “the Glad Game” to boost her spirits. The Glad Game—which involves looking for the silver lining in every situation—allows her to remain cheerful no matter how coldly and harshly her aunt treats her. Pollyanna teaches the town’s residents how to be glad, too, and her sunny outlook soon reanimates the town. Not even strict Aunt Polly is entirely immune to Pollyanna’s infectious charm. But when misfortune strikes, Pollyanna will find her irrepressible optimism put to the test. This is an unabridged version of the heartwarming children’s tale by American author Eleanor H. Porter, first published in 1913.
