I just read Heidi by Johanna Spyri for the first time! I don't know how I managed to miss it when I was younger since I read everything I could get my hands on. This is my interpretation of the opening of the book when Heidi's aunt is bringing her up the mountain to live with her grandfather.
I decided to do this because Tomie dePaola has selected this passage to illustrate for his award this year. Here's the info. I still have to paint this print and I'll post it when it's done.
