“The sweetest creation of childlike yet written” – Mark Twain
Since it was first published on 1908, Anne of Green Gables has been treasured by millions of readers around the world. Anne Shirley, an orphan, arrives at Green Gables by mistake; the Cuthberts wanted a boy. But for Anne, Green gables is a dream come true. Thanks to her endearing nature, she wins the hears of the Cuthberts, finds “kindred spirits” and “a bosom friend,” and takes a staid island community on a merry ride of adventure and surprise.
