"Looking forward to things is half the pleasure of them."
Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are in for a big surprise. They're waiting for an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables--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's impossible to imagine life without her.
Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874-1942) was a Canadian author who wrote around 500 short stories and poems, as well as twenty published novels. The years she spent on the beautiful Prince Edward Island influenced her writing and inspired her stories of the loveable, red-headed orphan, Anne Shirley.
