Our L. M. Montgomery set includes Anne of Avonlea and Anne of Green Gables.

Anne of Avonlea
In her 1908 novel, Anne of Green Gables, L. M. Montgomery created one of the best-loved heroines in children’s literature. Spirited and open-hearted, impulsive and determined, Anne Shirley is admired the world over. In this sequel, a teenaged Anne becomes a teacher and helps her guardian Marilla to raise six-year-old orphaned twins. While she thrives in her new grown-up roles, Anne is still impetuous and wilful – and prone to anxiety over her freckled nose. Anna C. Leplar’s charming illustrations show a young woman whose efforts to be sophisticated are often thwarted by embarrassing scrapes.

Anne of Green Gables
Anne Shirley falls in love with the rambling farmhouse called Green Gables the moment she sees it. Unfortunately she is not quite what Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew were expecting: they had applied to the orphanage for a boy to help on the farm, not a skinny eleven-year-old girl with a head full of romantic notions. At first Marilla is adamant that Anne should be sent back, but her heart relents when she hears about the girl's wretched life, and Matthew - though he would never interfere - is clearly already bewitched by the spirited red-head with a temper to match her hair.
