Anne of Green Gables
One of the most popular children’s books of all time and treasured by readers of all ages, including the writer Margaret Atwood, who introduces this edition.
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 them on their 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 relents when she hears about the girl's wretched life. Matthew – though he would never interfere – is clearly already bewitched by the spirited red-head who has a temper to match her hair.
