It's another good book full of heart-warming short stories of the people who lived around Anne Shirley (not about Anne, although her name is referred to a few times). I didn't enjoy this one as well as the previous one, but it was still a good read.
They based the Disney "Avonlea" TV series on this book!
This book is filled with stories about people living in Avonlea (some include familiar names, or last names from the Anne of Green Gables series). Further Chronicles of Avonlea was less enjoyable than Chronicles of Avonlea. There were some interesting stories, and this book was filled with more sadness than the first, but it wasn't bad. I just was a little bored while reading through some of the stories.
This edition was published in 1983 by Grosset and Dunlap. The illustration on this special edition, hard bound front is the one of Anne with her hand up to a large flowered hat on her head, not the one pictured. Pristine Condition.
