|Anne of Green Gables, L.M. Montgomery|
“Because when you are imagining, you might as well imagine something worth while.”
Summary: Anne of Green Gables, not of Green Gables at first, however, circumstances provided a way for the orphan girl to land in the hands of the Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert. The Cuthbert siblings decide to adopt an able worker for their Gables and farmland, but in the mixup of the adoption they end up with a tiny, impassioned, red-headed Anne Shirley.
With a mind beyond her few years, Anne turns the town of Avonlea into a blunder of amazement. The citizens of the little town, in Prince Edward Island, have and will always be impressed by the little Anne of Green Gables.
The adventures and imaginings that involve Anne and the friends (and arch enemies) are full of bewildering excitement. There is never a dull moment or place where Anne is prone to be near.
