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.
As inspiring today as it was in 1908, this beautiful centenary edition of Anne of Green Gables remains a testament to the powers of hope, friendship and imagination.

"Within months of the book's publication Anne became a classic heroine for any little girl who has ever fretted about her looks, hungered for Art and Beauty, and pursued long words in the hope they would become her special friends" ( Guardian)
"A scrawny 13-year-old, all carrot-colored pigtails and outrageous chatter, Anne seems fated to go nowhere but back to the orphanage. Her new family, after all, ordered a boy and she was delivered by mistake. But by turning adversity to advantage with lots of spunk, Anne of Green Gables has enchanted four generations of children and their elders since the world's most widely read Canadian novel was first published in Boston in 1908" ( New York Times)
"Montgomery's ability to incorporate such complex themes into writing that is so accessible to younger readers makes her arguably the grandmother of the YA/adult crossover novel" ( Guardian)
"Anne is a captivating heroine, a whirlwind of energy and good intentions" ( New Statesman)
