‘The dearest and most moving and delightful child since the immortal Alice’
- Mark Twain
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 finding herself in embarrassing scrapes.
