Pollyanna is a classic turn-of-the-century children's novel about an 11-year-old orphan girl. It was written by Eleanor H. Porter, and first published in 1913.[1]

Because her mother died giving birth to her, Pollyanna was raised by her father, a missionary in the Midwest US. After her missionary father dies, Pollyanna is sent back East to live with her mother's sister (Aunt Polly).

Her life as the adopted daughter of a wealthy Vermont woman is the subject of the novel.

Pollyanna's chief occupation is playing The Glad Game, as taught to her by her father. The point is to find something good about a situation and be "glad" about it. She teaches this game to anyone who will listen and cheers up the entire town.
