Anne of Green Gables (Complete and Unabridged Classics)
Anne of Green Gables - Complete and Unabridged Classics Author:L. M. Montgomery When the Cathberts adopt an orphan, they aren't prepared for Anne Shirley. But the spunky heroine wins everyone's heart and finds herself a true home at last.
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.
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!
"The owners of Green Gables have a problem. They had asked for an orphan boy to help them with their farm chores. Somehow, the orphanage sent a girl instead -- a talkative redhead named Anne.
The owners decide to send Anne back to the orphanage as soon as possible. But the lively girl has an unusual effect on people. She seems to charm everyone - from a busybody neighbor to a handsome boy named Gilbert Blythe. And the longer Anne stays at Green Gables, the less anyone can remember what life was like without her."
