Anne of Green Gables Teacher Guideby Novel Units, Inc. Staff
Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, middle-aged brother and sister, decide to adopt an orphan boy to help with farm chores on their remote Prince Edward Island homestead in turn-of-the-century Canada. Anne Shirley, eleven years old, is the redheaded girl sent by mistake from the orphanage. While initially the Cuthberts are dismayed, thinking a girl will be no use at all, they soon fall in love with the talkative, mischievous Anne - and she with them. One look at their snug white farmhouse and Anne knows she wants to stay forever. And the longer Anne stays, the harder it is for anyone to imagine Green Gables without her. A bestseller from the moment it was published over three-quarters of a century ago, ANNE OF GREEN GABLES has allowed generations of children to grow up right along with Anne.
"The sweetest creation of child life yet written." (Mark Twain)
