Weston Taylor. The books are unabridged in this edition but have had some spelling and punctuation updates. Pollyanna is orphaned and moves in with her strict, duty-bound aunt. Pollyanna's intentional and contagious gladness spreads through the entire town, but it has no effect on Aunt Polly--until something happens that endangers Pollyanna's own ability to "just be glad." In the included sequel, Pollyanna goes to Boston to stay with a wealthy widow whose only nephew has been missing for eight years. Ruth Carew is a bitter, lonely woman who has given up on the search--until Pollyanna moves in with her. Can Pollyanna help Mrs. Carew find her lost nephew, or learn to appreciate life even in his absence?
