Eleanor H. Porter

Eleanor H(odgman) Porter (1868 - 1920) was an American novelist and short-story writer whose children's story 'Pollyanna' became the Harry Potter of its day. Pollyanna's irrepressible optimism is illustrated by the 'glad game', in which she would find the positive in any situation. 'Glad Clubs' were formed, and the book was adapted for the theatre, cinema and television.
