A skinny, red-haired, and freckled orphan girl is mistakenly sent to live with a shy, elderly bachelor and his spinster sister on the north shore of Canada's Prince Edward Island; The elderly siblings had asked to adopt a young boy who could work on the family farm, but the imaginitive and rambunctious Anne Shirley arrives instead, and becomes the center of a series of entertaining adventures.

often. Mrs. Rachel, ponder as she might, could make nothing of it and her afternoon's enjoyment was spoiled.

"I'll just step over to Green Gables after tea and find out from Marilla where he's gone and why," the worthy woman finally concluded. "He doesn't generally go to town this time of year and he NEVER visits; if he'd run out of turnip seed he wouldn't dress up and take the buggy to go for more; he wasn't driving fast enough to be going for a doctor. Yet something must have happened since last night to start him off. I'm clean puzzled, that's what, and I won't know a minute's peace of mind or conscience until I know what has taken Matthew Cuthbert out of Avonlea today."

Accordingly after tea Mrs. Rachel set out; she had not far to go; the big, rambling, orchard-embowered house where the Cuthberts lived was a scant quarter of a mile up the road from Lynde's Hollow. To be sure, the long lane made it a good deal further. Matthew Cuthbert's father, as shy and silent as his son after him, had got a

In this classic Canadian children's story, plucky orphan Anne adjusts to life on the farm and changes the lives of those around her.

Anne evolves in later stories into a more well-rounded person. She's a little too young and saccharine here. But this story has stood the test of time and is deservedly a classic.
I saw the TV show but it didn't really get me until one day on vacation a few years ago. I was engrossed in an exciting action beach book for guys when I heard my wife reading Anne Shirley to our granddaughter. I think it was the part where uncle Matthew meets her for the first time at the train station and takes her home to Green Gables. I had to put my book down just to pay attention to one of the most delightful passages in all literature. I have a lump in my throat right now, just thinking about that passage. Since then I have read the book, seen the play and bought the T-shirt. And I'm usually a guy who reads things like Tim Clancy, Stephen King, Louis Lamour. Lucy Maude, wherever you are, thank you so much.
First I read this book when i was an exchange student in USA. The book belongs to my host sister. Never finished it until I bought one for myself when I was in Canada for school trip. I watch the movie first and love it so much. And I start to read it again. And before I went back to my home country, my host mom give me 7 other books.
Everytime I read the books it always reminds me of my host family.
i first read this book back home in Ghana, when i was about 10. my impression? short version: "one of the the best books i've ever read, made me fall in love with reading, and it took me another 10 years before i could find the sequel to that. i mean, its Africa, so you know what i mean... I couldn't hide my joy. today someone told me that it's a book for 12 year old girls. i think that's rubbish!" i owe my reading life to L.M. Montgomery. God rest her soul!
I don't think it's just a children's book. It's a book for all ages. Any one who reads it would enjoy it. A lovely book surely.
Wonderfully written. I just entered my 30s was a little grief sticken over it :p.
Reading this book and the entire series. Brought back memories of my childhood. and the fun I had. I too had a good imagination :D. COuld not keep the book down till i finished all the 6 books. Wonderful for kids Who are entering their teens just to get a glimpse of Life itself. Even though a story pains are never missed. Everyone has to go through pains. Life still goes on. Would surely recommend to all ages.
Michael James Ploof - A Satirical High-Adventure Romp Through the Fantasy Genre
FEATURED AUTHOR - Michael Ploof spent his youth in the land of make-believe. School was a bore, and growing up in the "Boonies" without cable television forced him to use his imagination. If he wasn't holed up in his bedroom playing with his vast collection of action figures, he could be found in the forest with a wooden sword or staff in hand, battling the forces of evil. As an 80's kid, he was raised on a healthy diet of movies like Star Wars, The Neverending Story, Labyrinth, Goonies, and endless other… Read more
