Description

Puffin Classics: the definitive collection of timeless stories, for every child

Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it?

Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are in for a big surprise. They are expecting the arrival of an orphan boy to help work at Green Gables, their farm and home - but a skinny, red-haired girl turns up instead. Feisty and full of spirit, Anne Shirley charms her way into the Cuthberts' affection with her vivid imagination and constant chatter. It's not long before Anne finds herself in trouble, but soon it becomes impossible for the Cuthberts to imagine life without 'their Anne' - and for the people of Avonlea to remember what life was like before this wildly creative little girl whirled into town.

Anne of Green Gables is a classic children's story about knowing your worth, the power of imagination, and finding your family. Much beloved by readers for generations, once read, Anne will never leave your heart.
