Publisher's Summary

Pollyanna, an expert at her favorite "Glad Game" of always looking at the bright side in her numerous trials, is one of the most popular and enduring characters in all of children's literature.

As Pollyanna arrives in Beldingsville to live with her strict and dutiful maiden aunt, she exclaims, "Oh, Aunt Polly, I don't know how to be glad enough that you let me come to live with you!" And from this point she begins to bring cheer into everybody's life, including the sick, the lonely, and the just plain miserable. All are transformed until one day when something so terrible happens that even Pollyanna doesn't know how to feel glad anymore.

    "pollyanna"

    I enjoyed this book. The only fault i found was that, the voice of the young were old. which spoilt it a little. It would be difficult to make it any other way

    "A classic"

    Although supposedly a child's book, I have much enjoyed this as an adult. Recommended.

    Story
    "Another Winner!"

    Somehow in my youth I managed to miss the story of Pollyanna. I had never read the book or seen a movie version. When my children's literature list turned up this gem, we decided to listen to it together. We all loved it!

    The story itself is precious. We described it as "Anne of Green Gables meets the Secret Garden and The Railway Children." Pollyanna's difficult situation and her positive take on practically everything actually challenged my thinking and helped me to look at the bright side of things as well.

    The story was wonderful, the performance was great, and we all were uplifted by this story. I Highly recommend for kids to adults.

    "Glad to find it on Audible"

    The story of Pollyanna is so refreshing and a great reminder for better today and future. No matter what life may bring, we can try to be patient and exercise ourselves to think better, be empathetic.
    I'm glad I got to find this book, Pollyanna on Audible.
