Synopsis

Pollyanna (1913) by Eleanor H Porter (1868-1920) is a classic children’s novel based on a young orphan named Pollyanna who is sent to live with her strict aunty in New England town. Pollyanna transforms the lives of the people in the town by lifting their spirits by following her game called “The Glad Game” which her father had taught her one Christmas where she was expecting to receive a doll in a barrel but instead she found crutches. A disappointed Pollyanna quickly absorbed her father’s comment “to be glad about the crutches because we didn’t need to use them”. A cheerful Pollyanna viewed life from this angle and taught the locals how to be grateful and happy with what they have until one day tragedy strikes where Pollyanna loses the use of her legs and she no longer wants to play her game. The entire town gather to help cheer little Pollyanna.
