"The books I read most as a child were Lucy Maud Montgomery." —Madeleine L'EngleA classic for all ages, this official, unabridged edition of Anne of Green Gables features the unforgettable character of Anne Shirley and special memories, exclusively from L.M. Montgomery's granddaughter.Redheaded orphan Anne Shirley longs for a real home, somewhere she can truly belong. When she first arrives at the Green Gables house on Prince Edward Island, it's everything she ever imagined. But to stay, she'll first have to convince Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert to adopt her. And that means controlling her temper (even when Gilbert Blythe calls her "Carrots"), staying out of trouble (and away from hair dye), and not getting too carried away with her daydreams (though she would make the perfect Lady of Shallot floating down the river). Anne might not always get it quite right, but she does keep things interesting...Through Anne's eyes, the ordinary world becomes magical and every day is an adventure. She inspires the dreamer in all of us, never hesitates to say the things we wish we could get away with, and makes us cherish every kindred spirit we meet. It's no surprise Anne is loved around the world by generations of readers.

"One of my absolute favorites as a child! Still holds up to this day!"
"I was finally able to read this whole book through! When I was younger, it felt far too boring. This time around, though, I really loved it. It's a little less dramatized than the TV show (Anne With An E), which is big plus for me. I wish they would've incorporated more of Diana's attitude into the TV series. She seemed to have a lot more sass in the book. "
"Finished this a while ago and just to lazy to review it so I'll do that now while I'm here! It was the first classic I've read! Anne is adorable and relatable! I still am unsure if I'll continue the series, I might eventually but rn my summer is booked(with books I want to read)! But it was still amazing I'd give it 4.5 ⭐'s(I just rounded up to 5 stars here because likewise doesn't have half stars)."
"Right now I’m rereading the Amelia Peabody series…mystery intrigue and a funny intrepid heroine set during the height of Egyptology archeology "
