The heroine of the classic children's book Pollyanna, written by Eleanor H. Porter in 1913, is known for her relentlessly cheerful attitude and ability to see the positive side of the most adverse of situations. After her father's death she has to go and live with her rich, cold-hearted and embittered Aunt Polly. However, her sunny nature prevails and by the end of the book the whole village is joining in her 'glad game'.
