Anne of Green Gables
This week, Monique Polak chose Anne of Green Gables, written by Lucy Maud Montgomery in 1908.
Here is what Monique says about why she chose this book:
There is no resisting Anne Shirley, the mischievous, outspoken and huge-hearted heroine of this novel. Originally written for adults, Anne of Green Gables was appropriated by a younger audience. This book for readers of all ages is about friendship (Anne Shirley longs, as we all do, for "a kindred spirit"), the bonds of community and the power of imagination.
