One of literature’s most irresistible young heroines—the novel that inspired the Netflix series Anne!
Sent to Green Gables farm by mistake, eleven-year-old orphan Anne Shirley prays that Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert will decide to keep her nevertheless. The middle-aged brother and sister wanted a boy to help around the farm; a skinny girl with bright red hair and a fiery personality to match is not at all what they need. But Anne’s quick wit and boundless imagination, developed over a lifetime spent in and out of orphanages, soon charm the Cuthberts and their Prince Edward Island friends and neighbors. The story of a special young girl finally finding her home, Anne of Green Gables is a masterpiece of children’s fiction and a true delight for readers of all ages.
