This was a fascinating story about a young orphan girl who has quite an imagination. Although she is unwanted by most people and runs her tongue on and on, she finds herself in the home of Green Gables owned by a brother and sister who adopt her. This is filled with tales of how she spends her first 6 years in Green Gables in the first place she can truly call her home. It was encased with stories of friendship, heartache, and growing up. I wanted to read this book series for years (and even owned it as a child but had never read it until now. . and I am 28). I'm so glad that I have been able to read it. I laughed, cried, and could quote a bunch of it since I grew up watching the mini-series.

I must have read this book ten times as a child. Even as an adult, it never fails to cheer me up and remind me of how beautiful the world can be.

A brilliant orphan who just wants a home, a book, and to banish her red hair.
If you want a clean happy read for your daughter 9 up or yourself this is the series to read. Sweet & very funny, there is a little Anne in all of us. Best bet buy it for your younger daughter & read her a chapter at bed every night.

This book is a great read for an upcoming teen or tweener interested in life at the turn of the century but its appeal crosses all generations and genders. Equally as good as the Disney real-life portrayal of this 20th century gem!

Anne (spelt with an e) arrived at Green Gables as an orphan. The Bachelor ( Matthew) and his sister, (Marilla) who was an old maid had asked that the orphanage send a boy to help on the farm.

Anne talked constantly and day dreamed and that was the last thing this couple wanted. Anne was always getting into trouble because of her day dreaming.

Did the couple keep her or send her back? Well, you will have to read the story to get the answer to this.

Since I adopted two boys I found the book intersting.
