From the publisher:
"Anne Shirley is a skinny redhead who never stops talking. The Cuthberts, who meant to adopt a boy to help on the farm, are both exasperated and entertained by Anne's constant chatter and romantic imagination, and don't know what to make of her. But they soon find it hard to remember what Green Gables was like without Anne Shirley.
A much loved Canadian classic, L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables has sold millions of copies since it was first published in 1908 and has been translated into many other languages."
