The Cuthberts are in for a shock.

They are expecting an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables - but a skinny red-haired girl turns up instead. Highly spirited Anne Shirley charms her way into the Cuthberts' affection with her vivid imagination and constant chatter, and soon it's impossible to imagine life without her.

A favourite classic with cover and introduction by the inimitable Lauren Child, award-winning creator of Clarice Bean and the hugely popular Charlie and Lola series.

About the Author

L. M. Montgomery was born in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, in 1874. A prolific writer, she published many short stories, poems and novels but she is best known for Anne of Green Gables and its sequels, inspired by the years she spent on the beautiful Prince Edward Island. Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942 and was buried in Cavendish on her beloved island.

"This is an exciting edition of Canada's most enduring literary classic, Anne of Green Gables. Cogent and compelling, Devereux's introduction sets the stage for a fresh look at the novel with an impressive array of relevant texts by L.M. Montgomery and her contemporaries. Montgomery's 'The Way to Make a Book' is a true discovery." -- Irene Gammel, Ryerson University

"Devereux's editing is judicious, fully informed by current scholarship, and the supplementary materials--dealing with Montgomery's views of gender and the writing life, early versions of the novel's episodes, and inspirations for Anne--will be fascinating to students and general readers alike." -- Lorraine York, McMaster University
