When Anne Shirley arrives at Green Gables, with its shower of apple blossoms and fields of buttercups, she hopes it will be the place she can call home. It's everything she's ever dreamed of! So when Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert tell her they were expecting a boy orphan -- someone strong enough to help around their farm -- Anne despairs. Is it her flaming red hair they don't like? Or her matching temper? Or her nonstop chatter? If only they'd give her a chance to mend her ways. But spunky Anne has a knack for getting into mischief -- as much as she has for spreading happiness all around her. She's a unique girl. She's Anne of Green Gables.
From the Hardcover Library Binding edition.
