As soon as Anne Shirley arrived at the snug, & #160; & #160; white farmhouse called Green Gables, she knew she& #160; & #160; wanted to stay forever... but would the Cuthberts& #160; & #160; send her back to the orphanage? Anne knows she's not& #160; & #160; what they expected -- a skinny girl with decidedly& #160; & #160; red hair and a temper to match. If only she could& #160; & #160; convince them to let her stay, she'd try very hard& #160; & #160; not to keep rushing headlong into scrapes or blurt& #160; & #160; out the very first thing she had to say. Anne was& #160; & #160; not like anybody else, everyone at Green Gables& #160; & #160; agreed; she was special -- a girl with an enormous& #160; & #160; imagination. This orphan girl dreamed of the day& #160; & #160; when she could call herself Anne of Green Gables.
Read the timeless classic about the beloved Anne Shirley, a red-haired orphan with a fiery spirit, before the new NETFLIX series premieres and don't miss the forward by Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid's Tale, celebrating the 100th anniversary of this children's favorite
Eleven-year-old Anne Shirley has never known a real home. Since her parents' deaths, she's bounced around to foster homes and orphanages. When she is sent by mistake to live with Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert at the snug white farmhouse called Green Gables, she wants to stay forever. But Anne is not the sturdy boy Matthew and Marilla were expecting.
She's a mischievous, talkative redheaded girl with a fierce temper, who tumbles into one scrape after another. Anne is not like anybody else, the Cuthberts agree; she is special, a girl with an enormous imagination. All she's ever wanted is to belong somewhere. And the longer she stays at Green Gables, the harder it is for anyone to imagine life without her.
- Anne is] the dearest and most lovable child in fiction since the immortal Alice.--Mark Twain
