Introducing a bold, bright new take on your favorite books. A collection that celebrates color and literature at once! It's hard to imagine little red-headed Anne Shirley without picturing the sprawling green pastures of Prince Edward Island . . . Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are in for a big surprise. They're waiting for an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables - but a skinny, red-haired girl turns up instead. Feisty and full of spirit, it's not long before Anne Shirley finds herself in all kinds of trouble. But soon it's impossible to imagine life at Green Gables without her.
L. M. Montgomery was born in 1874 on Prince Edward Island, Canada, where she spent her childhood living with her grandparents in an old farmhouse. A prolific writer, she published many short stories, poems and novels, many of which were inspired by the years she spent on the beautiful Prince Edward Island. Anne of Green Gables and its sequels have always been amongst the most popular of children's classics. Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942 and was buried on her beloved island.
