Publisher Comments:

Tor Classics are affordably-priced editions designed to attract the young reader. Original dynamic cover art enthusiastically represents the excitement of each story. Appropriate "reader friendly" type sizes have been chosen for each title—offering clear, accurate, and readable text. All editions are complete and unabridged, and feature Introductions and Afterwords.

This edition of Anne of Green Gables includes a Foreward and Afterword by T.A. Barron.

Arriving on the train from the orphanage, Anne was enchanted by the green beauty of Prince Edward Island. She was an awkward, redheaded girl with a worn suitcase and a heart yearning for love. Was the little town on Avonlea, and the house called Green Gables, to be her new home?

To Anne's dismay, it was all a mistake. It was true that the old couple who lived at Green Gables had requested a child from the orphanage. But they had asked for a boy!

Anne did the only sensible thing. She burst into tears....

Thus begins the story of Anne of Green Gables, which continues in Anne of Avonlea. These beloved classics are among the most popular novels ever written; they have made their author, L.M. Montgomery, a legend in Canada and around the world.

Synopsis:

A classic story of a young orphan who finds a family when she is adopted by a brother and sister living in the small Canadian town of Avonlea. Anne is willful, imaginative, temperamental, and loquacious. She falls in love with the town, but she will need all her charms to adjust to her new life. This is a timeless story of an impetuous girl who grows into a sensitive young woman.
