Product description

Anne of Green Gables is the classic children’s book by L M Montgomery, the inspiration for the Netflix Original series Anne with an E. Watch it now!

Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are in for a big surprise. They are waiting for an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables – but a skinny, red-haired girl turns up instead. Feisty and full of spirit, Anne Shirley charms her way into the Cuthberts’ affection with her vivid imagination and constant chatter. It’s not long before Anne finds herself in trouble, but soon it becomes impossible for the Cuthberts to imagine life without ‘their’ Anne – and for the people of Avonlea to recall what it was like before this wildly creative little girl whirled into town.

    Anne of Green Gables is a classic tale of a little girl who is an orphan and then she comes to live with the cuthberts. I would recommend as an age rating for the book 10-14

    This book is brilliant! It makes me laugh out loud. Anne is one of my favorite book characters of all – she’s hilarious! The rest of the series is equally wonderful.

    I love this book and Anne’s character. She’s determined and nearly always looking on the bright side. She’s got the perfect personality for her flaming red hair!

    this book is great it is about a girl called anne and how they adopted her but it was the wrong person because they wanted a boy and they got a girl. but they kept her and they lived at green gables. she also so made a bosom friend. a bosom friend is a friend that you can do and tell everything with.

    I love this series!! Anne’s bold, friendly tale is very entertaining and i delight in her absent-minded short-comings that are hastily fixed and learned from. Anne is practicly my heroine!!
