Author(s): L. M. Montgomery
Presented in a beautiful slip-case edition that contains new, full-color illustrations for readers aged 8 and up, follow Anne's adventures on Prince Edward Island in the first of L. M. Montgomery's much-loved stories.
When Marilla and Matthew decide to adopt a boy from an orphanage they are not sure what to expect. But it's certainly not the imaginative, red-haired little girl who arrives at Green Gables instead.
L. M. Montgomery was born in 1874 on Prince Edward Island, Canada, where she spent her childhood living with her grandparents in an old farmhouse. A prolific writer, she published many short stories, poems and novels, many of which were inspired by the years she spent on the beautiful Prince Edward Island. Anne of Green Gables and its sequels have always been amongst the most popular of children's classics. Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942 and was buried on her beloved island.
