When Marilla and Matthew decide to adopt a boy from an orphanage they are not sure what to expect. But it's certainly not the imaginative, red-haired little girl who arrives at Green Gables instead.
Presented in a beautiful slip-case edition with new, full-color illustrations and in its original, unabridged text, readers ages 8 and up will follow Anne's adventures on Prince Edward Island in the first of L.M. Montgomery's much-loved stories.
L. M. Montgomery was born in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, in 1874. A prolific writer, she published many short stories, poems and novels but she is best known for Anne of Green Gables and its sequels, inspired by the years she spent on the beautiful Prince Edward Island. Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942 and was buried in Cavendish on her beloved island.
