Author: L.M. Montgomery (Lucy Maud Montgomery)
Publisher: Puffin Classics; Paperback
This is the first book in a delightful series about the childhood and adult adventures of orphan Anne Shirley. This book deals with the trials of Anne's adoption by Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, a spinster brother and sister, living on their farm, Green Gables, on Prince Edward Island. Marilla and Matthew wanted a boy to help out on the farm, but were sent the fiery-haired, and tempered, Anne instead. The often hilarious, and always endearing, escapades, or "scrapes" as Anne herself would say, of Anne and her friends have delighted readers for generations.
