Anne Shirley has never belonged to anybody before - not really . . .So she can't contain her excitement when she goes to live with Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert at Green Gables. But they're in for a big surprise! They are expecting an orphan boy to help on the farm - but a skinny, red-haired girl turns up instead. Feisty and full of spirit, Anne charms her way into the Cuthberts' affections with her vivid imagination and constant chatter. It's not long before Anne's escapades lead her into trouble - but it's impossible to imagine life without her. To celebrate the centenary of this much-loved classic, read the wonderful prequel Before Green Gablesby Budge Wilson and enjoy Anne's mischief and adventures before she gets to the farm.
