Toni, the Little Woodcarver

Johanna Spyri (1827 - 1901)
Translated by Helen B. Dole (1857 - 1944)

Toni is a little boy who discovers a love for woodcarving. When tragedy strikes and his father dies, Toni does all he can to help his mother Elsbeth. He sets his dream aside to become a woodcarver when the cost to pursue it is out of their means. The only job available for the boy is as a herdsman in the mountains. Cut off from the home he loves, he suffers tremendously and no one can help. Only his mother’s love can turn him around. (Summary by Rainee)
