The stern Ms Polly’s household is disrupted when her orphaned niece comes to live with her. The endearing child is always ready to please, but doesn’t really believe in doing what her heart rejects. She brightens the serious household with her optimistic attitude, playing what she calls ‘just being glad’ game. Always smiling and helpful, Pollyanna touches the lives of many people in the neighbourhood – teaching them a new way to live. Pollyanna is a story which emphasizes there is always something to be glad about in life, only if one really looks for it.

H. Rider Haggard

Sir Henry Rider Haggard was an English writer of adventure novels set in exotic locations, predominantly Africa. One of the best-selling novelists of the nineteenth century, his stories continue to be popular and influential to this day and age. King Solomon’s Mines was Haggard’s breakout novel. Written in six weeks on a bet, Haggard had almost sold the manuscript to a publisher for a paltry 500 pounds. At the last minute, he insisted on 10 percent of the royalties, which set him up for life. King Solomon’s Mines is considered the first of the Lost World genre and has inspired dozens of adventure stories, including Edgar Rice Burroughs’s Tarzan books and the Indiana Jones movies. Haggard wrote over 50 novels. He was made a Knight Bachelor in 1912 and a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1919. The locality of Rider, British Columbia, was named in his memory.
