Front Cover
Oxford University Press, Incorporated, Jan 1, 2000 - Foreign Language Study - 56 pages
Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew want to adopt an orphan, to help on the farm at Green Gables. They ask for a boy, but they get Anne, who has red hair and freckles, and who talks and talks and talks. They didn't want a girl, but how can they send a child back, like an unwanted parcel? So Anne stays, and begins a new life in the sleepy, quiet village of Avonlea in Canada.
But it is not so quiet after Anne comes to live there . . .

I have loved the TV series, Anne With an E, the latest TV version of Anne of Green Gables. I'm not sure how I missed this series when I was a child, but I know I would have loved it then. Charming, sweet, and enjoyable! Read full review
