Mark Twain called Anne 'the dearest and most moving and delightful child since the immortal Alice'. The story of how a bad-tempered, naughty, red-haired orphan charmed a whole town.

‘It’s a million times nicer to be Anne of Green Gables than Anne of nowhere in particular, isn’t it?’

My dislikes: Being an orphan, having red hair, being called ‘carrots’ by Gilbert Blythe.

My likes: Living at the Green Gables with Marilla and Matthew, my bosom-friend Diana, dresses with puff sleeves.

My regrets: Dying my hair green. Smashing a slate over Gilbert Blythe’s head.

My dream: To tame my temper. To be good (this is an uphill struggle). To grow up to have auburn hair!

Includes exclusive material: In the Backstory you can find out about the real Green Gables, the plucky author and more!
