This edition of Anne of Green Gables includes a Foreward and Afterword by T.A. Barron.

Arriving on the train from the orphanage, Anne was enchanted by the green beauty of Prince Edward Island. She was an awkward, redheaded girl with a worn suitcase and a heart yearning for love. Was the little town on Avonlea, and the house called Green Gables, to be her new home?

To Anne's dismay, it was all a mistake. It was true that the old couple who lived at Green Gables had requested a child from the orphanage. But they had asked for a boy!

Anne did the only sensible thing. She burst into tears....

Thus begins the story of Anne of Green Gables, which continues in Anne of Avonlea. These beloved classics are among the most popular novels ever written; they have made their author, L.M. Montgomery, a legend in Canada and around the world.

Slate

The romance in this novel is born in a library, over hidden words, and perhaps that’s why I keep returning to Mitchell—he is a studious, quixotic man who gets excited by archival materials.

Although Anne gets her best friend drunk in one episode (it's an honest mistake), there's very little here that's at all iffy for kids -- though younger readers might get a bit bogged down in the many descriptions of Anne's Prince Edward Island, Canada, home.

This volume contains the so-called Blue Scrapbook (1893 to 1897) and the Red Scrapbook (1890s to mid-1910), which were compiled during Montgomery's life as a student, teacher, and writer on the island.
