When Anne Shirley arrives at Green Gables farm on Prince Edward Island, she surprises everyone: first of all, she is a girl. Marilla Cuthbert and her brother, Matthew, had specifically asked for an orphan boy. She has bright red hair that won't manage and a mouth that won't shut. Nothing will ever be the same at Green Gables!

A favorite story of generations of girls ever since it was first published in 1908, Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic story of one girl's profound effect on a small Canadian community has stayed in print for nearly one hundred years and has been made into a popular TV series and even a musical.

Montgomery’s beloved “Anne of Green Gables” is available on Amazon, and Anne Shirley — the skinny 10-year-old redheaded orphan with the luminous gray eyes — was portrayed on the cover as a voluptuous blonde, leaning suggestively against a bale of hay.
