A classic of children’s literature whose vibrant energy, playful humour and emotional warmth endure to this day, the charming misadventures of Ann Shirley in her adoptive town of Avonlea are a delight from start to finish.
'Oh, it seems so wonderful that I'm going to live with you and belong to you. I've never belonged to anybody'
When a scrawny, freckled girl with bright red hair arrives on Prince Edward Island, Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are taken by surprise; they'd asked for a quiet boy to help with the farm work at Green Gables. But how can you return a friendless child to a grim orphanage when she tells you her life so far has been a 'perfect graveyard of buried hopes'? And so, the beguiling chatterbox stays. Full of dreams, warmth and spirit, it is not long before Anne Shirley wins their hearts.
