Anne of Green Gables (Paperback)
Read the timeless classic about the beloved Anne Shirley, a red-haired orphan with a fiery spirit, before the new Netflix series premieres. Farm-owning siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert want to adopt a boy to help them around the farm. In a mix-up, the orphanage sends them the active and imaginative Anne Shirley instead. They make the most of the mistake as Anne becomes the beloved heart of the family and community, as well as of generations of readers.
