Publisher Comments:

When you think classics, think Puffin!

"Looking forward to things is half the pleasure of them."

Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are in for a big surprise. They're 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's impossible to imagine life without her.

Synopsis:

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the publication of the book that introduced the world to Anne Shirley, this new edition features an Introduction by the award-winning creator of the characters of Charlie and Lola, Clarice Bean, and Hubert Horatio Bobton-Trent.

Synopsis:

Puffin Classics: the stories you love, the name you trust.

The handsome horse Black Beauty begins his life in a happy home, until a change of circumstances leads him to learn about a crueler side of life. Black Beauty is the ultimate classic novel for horse fans of all ages. Our Puffin Classics edition features an introduction by award-winning author Meg Rosoff.

About the Author

Anna Sewell was born in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England, on March 30, 1820. Brought up in a strict Quaker family, Anna developed a strong interest in horses as a young girl. But a crippling bone disease and a fall in 1834 left her an invalid for most of her life. By her mid-thirties she was severely lame and could only get around in a pony cart, and characteristically she would never use a whip on the animal. In 1871, she was told she had eighteen months to live, and by the end of that year, she had begun her book, Black Beauty, hoping it might make people a little kinder to their faithful horses. Although she was seriously ill, she lived long enough to finish her book and see it published in 1877. On April 25, 1878, she died at her home in Old Catton near Norwich, England. Black Beauty, an enormous success from its first appearance, was soon adopted by the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and used to improve the conditions of horses everywhere. Meg Rosoff was born in Boston, USA. She has worked in publishing, public relations and most recently advertising, but thinks the best job in the world would be head gardener for Regents Park. Meg lives in Highbury, North London. She is the author of Just in Case, What I Was, How I Live Now, the National Book Award finalist Picture Me Gone, and There is No Dog.
