The Cuthberts are in for a shock. They are expecting an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables - but a skinny red-haired girl turns up instead. Highly spirited Anne Shirley charms her way into the Cuthberts' affection with her vivid imagination and constant chatter, and soon it's impossible to imagine life without her. A favourite classic with cover and introduction by the inimitable Lauren Child, award-winning creator of Clarice Bean and the hugely popular Charlie and Lola series.

Book Review: Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery - Reviewed by Romi Foster (02 Jul 2011)
Though Anne of Green Gables was written a very very long time ago, it seems mostly as if it were only written a very short time ago. The few historical moments, mentioning Slates for writing on and the old picturesque country towns, very few of which you'll be able to find today, it is a true, hearty, country classic, written for every age of every era- it is beautifully written and Anne is one of the most amazing characters and she seems like she would be an amazing friend.
Anne of Green Gables, in this amazing Puffin Classic edition with cover designed by Lauren Child, is the perfect companion for any child or adult, a perfect read for anytime.
