Translated into over 50 languages
Johanna Spyri published a total of 48 books. The two volumes of the history of Heidi (published in 1880 and 1881) were without any doubt the most successful. The first translation into French was in 1882, the first English version two years later. It has now been translated into 50 languages. 12 feature films (last in 2015), 8 cartoons, 6 series, 8 comics and 4 musicals ensured that the Heidi myth spread worldwide. Many of the Heidi books are exhibited in the Heidi museum in the Heidi village.
