Highly spirited Anne Shirley charms her way into the Cuthberts' affection with her vivid imagination and constant chatter, and soon it's impossible to imagine life without her.

Baker & Taylor
Anne, an eleven-year-old orphan, is sent by mistake to live with a lonely, middle-aged brother and sister on a Prince Edward Island farm, where she makes an indelible impression on those around her.

Anne Shirley is a kindred spirit, indeed, and one of my favorite literary heroines of all time! This is a heartwarming and entertaining story about an orphan girl growing up in Prince Edward Island in the late 19th century. Anne's colorful personality, fierce loyalty to her caretakers and friends, and well-meaning misadventures will delight and charm readers of all ages. I highly recommend the whole series!

i read this book as part of the list of 300 books everyone should read once featured on Listopia. i felt sure i had read it before, but maybe i had just seen the movie so many times. i will definately go on to read the rest of the series.

A sweet, classic tale with a fiery heroine that I love and always will love. There is hardly any romance, but in the following instalments… Anne ❤️ Gilbert Blythe.
One age suitability note: technically anyone 6+ could read this, but probably only tweens and teens would find it interesting.

I simply love Anne of Green Gables, the whole story is amazing! The entire collection is for everyone to read, no matter your age. It is a classic!

Read this for my book club. We read an ELL edition. Loved Anne. We discussed Montgomery's life and how the book mirrored her own life. Also discussed her depression and death.
The same day as our meeting, the new Historica minute featuring Montgomery was released.

An extremely charming book for all! Definitely don't let the "Young Adult" classification steer you away. Nothing truly exciting ever happened in this book - I kept waiting for a BIG moment. And sure, there were some important milestones in Anne's life, but at the same time, the story was simple throughout. Nothing magical or out of the ordinary, and somehow, this is what made it so charming! Just a quirky orphan girl who is blessed with good caretakers, who allow her to flourish to her full potential. Anne reminds us all that it's okay to be different :-)

It's been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.

There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting.
