Now even the youngest Anne of Green Gables fans can celebrate the centennial anniversary.

2008 marks the one-hundredth anniversary of the publication of Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic tale of the red-headed orphan who is mistakenly sent to live with Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert of Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. The story has been translated into many languages the world over and is considered a classic in children's literature, though it continues to be read by children and adults alike.

Anne of Green Gables: Stories for Young Readers, adapted by Prince Edward Island writer Deirdre Kessler, is suitable for readers ages six and up. With colourful, historically accurate illustrations by award-winning illustrator David Preston Smith, this adapted version of L. M. Montgomery's wonderful story will delight readers too young for chapter books but nonetheless enthralled by the enduring appeal of this timeless classic story.

A Favorite!

This series was one of my childhood favorites, and lately, I've seen it making the blogging rounds and had a need to reread it.
I'm so glad I did!
I flew through it, yet, I savored it. It took me back to my own adolescence when my love for Green Gables first came about. I love it as much today as I did 30+ years ago.
Anne Shirley is always on the hunt for kindred spirits and yet, anyone who reads this book instantly becomes one. You look her quirky, imaginative ways. You love the unconditional love that Marilla and Matthew give her. You cry when someone important passes away in the story... at least, I do every time I read it.
You really get pulled right into Avonlea!
For those who have read it, can empathize. Those who haven't read the book... what are you waiting for? It's epic!!! And to think it was written in 1908. It doesn't feel like it though.
Yup, I'll always love this book.
