Product description

A sunny smile and a chirpy personality can work wonders… and when Anne comes to Green Gables, that’s exactly what she does! The Cuthberts are expecting an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables. So they get a shock when a skinny red-haired girl turns up instead! But feisty, spirited Anne soon charms her way into the Cuthberts’ affections with her wild daydreams, chirpy chatter and fiery temper! Soon it’s impossible for the Cuthberts to imagine life without ‘their’ Anne – and for the people of Avonlea to recall what things were like before this wildly creative little girl whirled into their town!

This timeless classic story comes in a brand new edition with new cover art and a new introduction from Lauren Child, creator of Charlie and Lola and Clarice Bean.

    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!!
