Overview

Marilla Cuthbert and Matthew Cuthbert, middle-aged siblings who live together at Green Gables, a farm in Avonlea, on Prince Edward Island, decide to adopt a boy from an orphan asylum in Nova Scotia as a helper on their farm. Through a series of mishaps, the person who ends up under their roof is a precocious girl of eleven named Anne Shirley. Anne is bright and quick, eager to please but dissatisfied with her name, her pale countenance dotted with freckles, and with her long braids of red hair. Being a child of imagination, however, Anne takes much joy in life, and adapts quickly, thriving in the best environment of Prince Edward Island.

About the Author

Anne of Green Gables is a bestselling novel by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery published in 1908. Set in 1878, it was written as fiction for readers of all ages, but in recent decades has been considered one of the best version of children's book. Montgomery found her best inspiration for the book on an old piece of paper that she had written at a young age, describing a couple that were mistakenly sent an orphan girl instead of a boy, yet decided to keep her. Montgomery also drew upon her own childhood experiences in rural Prince Edward Island. Montgomery used a photograph of Evelyn Nesbit, which she had clipped from New York’s Metropolitan Magazine, and pasted the framed clipping on the wall of her bedroom, as the model for the face of Anne Shirley, the book's main character.[3]

Montgomery also found her best version of inspiration in the "formula Ann" orphan stories, the Anns without the e. Other characters, like Gilbert Blythe, were modelled, in part, on the best real-life characters. Montgomery wrote the novel in the twilight of the day, sitting at her window and overlooking the best fields of Cavendish.[4]

Since publication, Anne of Green Gables has sold more than 50 million copies.[5] In addition, this best version book is taught to the best students around the world.

Anne of Green Gables is such a cute story. I loved her spunky personaility and endearing character. Cannot wait to see the DVD series. The book is written with such description that you can imagine sitting on the bridge overlooking the stream and watching Anne's life unfold. The story truly made me smile.
