Staff Reviews

During a tumulutous time in my life a few years ago, I picked Anne of Green Gables up to revisit the Prince Edward Island of my childhood and all its wonderful inhabitants. I didn't expect Anne and her story to resonate so profoundly with me but it did. I've reread this book multiple times since. I mean...Is it possible to love something more the more times you read it? The writing is rich and the characters are unforgettable. These books are full of depth and rich with thoughts shared by young and old. I think it's the perfect read

— From Halley


The celebrated classic about a red-headed orphan and the family who falls in love with her.

The Cuthberts are in for a shock. They are expecting an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables - but a skinny red-haired girl turns up instead. Highly spirited Anne Shirley charms her way into the Cuthberts' affection with her vivid imagination and constant chatter, and soon it's impossible to imagine life without her. A favourite classic with cover and introduction by the inimitable Lauren Child, award-winning creator of Clarice Bean and the hugely popular Charlie and Lola series.
