When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables send for a boy orphan to help them out at their farm, they mistakenly get Anne Shirley, a feisty, independent, but warm-hearted eleven-year-old girl. Fortunately, her sunny nature and quirky imagination win the hearts of her reluctant foster parents and everyone in the community. But not a day goes by without some memorable adventure or prank in the tragicomedy of her life. Early on, for example, she accidentally dyes her “cursed” red hair green. Later, in an effort to impress a neighbor she bakes a cake, but with liniment instead of vanilla. 

Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote that Anne is an extension of herself and represents the independent, “new” woman of the emerging twentieth century. Individualistic, resourceful, and of a great humanitarian heart, she remains a great role model for girls and women today.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[Anne Shirley is] the most moving and delightful child of fiction since the immortal Alice.”

    Mark Twain

  • “’Tis a fine novel for both the boy and girl set. Aside from Pippi Longstocking, there’s no other literary redhead of quite the same tomboyish aspects as our Anne.”

    " I've only read the first book of this collection so far, Anne of Green Gables, and that's what the rating is based on. This is an old-fashioned book, but it comes across as charming rather than dated. The turn of the 20th century was a period of innocence and optimism, at least as compared to now, and I those qualities shine through in this book. The characters are all vividly depicted and the older generation has a down-to-earth common sense that I found refreshing. It didn't make them boring - just solidly grounded and comforting. They reminded me distinctly of my grandparents. I also really enjoyed the descriptions of Prince Edward Island's seasons. The setting was so present it was almost another character. I'm not sure when, or if, I'll read the remaining 2 books. Despite my enjoyment, a little of this goes a long way. "

    " This is one of those books I think everyone, and I mean everyone, should read. I seriously adore this book to pieces. To be honest, this is the best one of the bunch, moreso than any of the following sequels. They were great (well, before Anne finally marries Gilbert, but you know how it is) but this was the original, the wonderful Anne-with-an-e who dreams all day long, who has hair the color of the sunset, and freckles! Lots of freckles! She can flavor cakes with liniment, dye her hair green, even almost drown in an attempt to play Elaine! XD "

    " Fresh and lovely. I like the books when Anne is a young girl much better than when she's all grown up and mature. "

    " My favorite childhood series... still enjoy rereading. I'm sure she doesn't remember but my good friend Chris Corry Litherland gave me books 1 & 4 for my 10th or 11th birthday. Loved the books ever since. "
