Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are in for a big surprise. They are waiting for an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables but a skinny, red-haired girl turns up instead.

It's not long before Anne finds herself in trouble, but soon it becomes impossible for the Cuthberts to imagine life without 'their' Anne and for the people of Avonlea to recall what it was like before this wildly creative little girl whirled into town.
