Anne of Green Gables

Front Cover
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2004 - Juvenile Fiction - 304 pages
The illustrations for this series were created by Scott McKowen, who, with his wife Christina Poddubiuk, operates Punch & Judy Inc., a company specializing in design and illustration for theater and performing arts. Their projects often involve research into the visual aspects of historical settings and characters. Christina is a theater set and costume designer and contributed advice on the period clothing for the illustrations.

Scott created these drawings in scratchboard an engraving medium which evokes the look of popular art from the period of these stories. Scratchboard is an illustration board with a specifically prepared surface of hard white chalk. A thin layer of black ink is rolled over the surface, and lines are drawn by hand with a sharp knife by scraping through the ink layer to expose the white surface underneath. The finished drawings are then scanned and the color is added digitally.

One thing's for certain, no house that Anne's in will ever be dull.” That's what Marilla Cuthbert says about Anne, the lively red-headed orphan she and her brother Matthew adopt. For decades, girls have agreed, eagerly reading every book in Lucy Maud Montgomery's series that chronicles Anne's coming of age.

Dianela Miller
Anne of Green Gables
Two siblings, a old lady and her old brother start thinking about having some else with them, perhaps a young, little person can bring them more happiness. They
talk about adopting, and set to adopt an orphanan boy, as they believe he will be suited for their home. As it was preplanned, decided, and expected, things go totally different!
Oh boy!!! Well, a tiny implication resulted in a fifty-fifty mistake, a change to have made a mistake, and as it happened, when it was all said and planned, they are now to have an amazingly smart girl who just happens to be unexpectedly their cup ot tea!
A very fun narrative of the adventures of Anne...of Green Gables!!!! The ingenious mind of Anne will take you on an enchanted world of Prince Edward Island...Funny, insightful, and unique, ...read and find out how the old brother and sister start getting to know this unexpected new relative!!!
 

Great classic book!
