RE: Anne of Green Gables
When the Cuthbert's decide to adopt a young boy to help Matthew on the farm, they didn't think their whole worlds would change forever. instead of a boy, a girl, by the name of Anne Shirley, arrives. The Cuthbert's decide to keep Anne, but with strict rules from Marilla. And with those strict rules comes harsh punishments.
When they enroll Anne into the local school, Anne meets friends and makes enemies. Without meaning to Anne always manages to get herself into mischief. Diana Barry, her loyal best friend, helps her along the way, and others, such as Gilbert Blythe, find themselves being rudely ignored.
Snapping slates over heads, dying her hair green and breaking her ankle are all part of the fun in Avonlea, though not always to Anne's carers, siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert.
The first novel in the 'Anne' series, this wonderfully written, emotional and hilarious read will excite readers of all ages!
