About the Author

Geboren am 12.6.1827 in Hirzel/Kt. Zürich, gestorben am 7.7.1901 in Zürich. Die Tochter eines Arztes und einer pietistischen Lyrikerin wuchs als viertes von sechs Kindern in einem Landarzthaushalt auf. Nach der Dorfschule und Privatunterricht beim Pfarrer erhielt sie in Zürich drei Jahre Fremdsprachen- und Musikunterricht, kam dann für ein Jahr nach Yverdon (Neuenburger See) in ein Pensionat. Ab 1845 unterrichtete sie zu Hause ihre jüngeren Schwestern und trieb autodidaktische Literaturstudien. Nach der Heirat mit dem Juristen (später Stadtschreiber) Bernhard Spyri zog sie 1852 nach Zürich. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This story has many characters, mostly children, and can get a little confusing at first but after a while the characters show they're own personal touches. Sally is the daughter of a pastor and lives with two brothers Ritz and Edi, as well as her parents and aunt. The town is subdivided by schools and such; Upper Wood, Lower Wood and Middle Lot. These divisions have somewhat of a class angle about them and many of the children look upon them as teams to root against and get up to mischief. The community becomes much excited when a well known elder-lady, Marianne, gives board to two strangers, Erick and his mother, both of whom wear fancy clothes and entail much mystery.

I'm not sure if my copy is the same copy as this but I was disappointed to find a translation year, which may or may not necessarily be the true date that the author penned this, in what was most likely another language. Johanna Spyri is most under-rated. Heidi was grand and worth re-reading but there are PLENTY of others! I hope others read more and review more. It would be nice to pick another book by her with some idea of what it's about!

I needed some inspiration and this book delivered. It is my third Spryri book and I look forward to reading more.

This short children's book is about a pastor's family and the mysterious new neighbors staying with an older woman. The little boy and his mother are surrounded in mystery and gossip but soon you learn more about Erick and his mom.

I liked the twists and turns and the lazy spring day feel to the story.

Spyri describes the fear of bedtime so fantastically that I was taken back to the days when I wanted to stay up and play. I liked Erick and Sally. They aren't cental characters, but their gradual friendship is sweet.

Sally and her two brothers are sort of central but the story is as much about their part of the world as it is about them.

It is hard to explain how refreshing a Spyri book is. It's like moral lessons and entertainment while taking a nature walk. I especially liked Edi and his youthful enthusiasm over history. He was just so clever but also still an average boy.

I reccomend you read it and the more well known Heidi.

All of Spyri's books are really sweet. They are good lesson books for children (and adults too).
