L. M. Montgomerys novel Anne of Green Gables recounts the adventures of Anne Shirley, an 11-year-old orphan mistakenly sent to a pair of siblings who intended to adopt a boy to help work on their farm in Prince Edward Island. Yet Annes quirky personality and good-natured spirit causes the siblings to grow to love her anyway, and soon the entire town falls for the precocious little girl with bright red hair.
Cherished by both children and adults, Anne of Green Gables is a celebration of fierce individualism, and the families we create, rather than the ones we are born into. This Deluxe edition is enhanced with a foreword by bestselling author J. Courtney Sullivan, and an introduction and suggestions for further reading by Benjamin Lefebvre, as well as a selection of early writing by L. M. Montgomery about the process of writing Anne.

Kerri Jarema, Bustle
"Rather than dispense the message that its only whats on the inside that counts, Anne of Green Gables conveys something more nuanced, that beauty can be a pleasure, that costumes can provide succor, that the right dress can improve your life all things that adults know to be true, sometimes, but that we try to simplify for our children."
Willa Paskin, The New York Times Magazine
