The young orphan Pollyanna is sent to live with her stern Aunt in a dour New England town. Refusing to be cast down by her circumstances, Pollyanna begins teaching the town "the glad game", which her father taught her. To play, one must find something to be glad about in every situation. Gradually, the irrepressible girl brings happiness and light to the lives of everyone around her. Pollyanna is a children's literature classic.
