Thank you to Mariah Marsden, Andrews McMeel Publishing, and NetGalley for allowing me the extreme pleasure of access to an advanced reader copy of “Anne of Green Gables: A Graphic Novel” for an honest review. I read Anne of Green Gables as a small girl and fell in love with L.M. Montgomery’s entire world. I devoured all of Anne’s series. I fell into, and also in love with, the Avonlea TV Series. I picked up all the side books people wrote on commentary and then cookbooks. Anything and everything I could to follow more into the life of that precious and beautiful girl, Anne, so obviously, I had to read her graphic novel. I feel this will be a great gateway for many children (and even adults!) to get into Anne of Green Gables, the books and the world, without feeling overwhelmed by the books themselves. The reading is simple and straightforward, the art is quite charming, and my forever love of ‘bosom friends’ Anne & Diana.

When orphan Anne (with an e) Shirley is sent to live with siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert in place of the boy they had requested to assist them with the farm work, neither could have imagined how this redheaded, freckled spit fire would impact their lives. Spirited, passionate and a chatterbox with a heart of gold who manages to accidentally get herself into trouble quite frequently, Anne transforms Green Gables and Avonlea with her presence. Kindred spirits with best friend Diana and ruthlessly competitive with Gilbert, who she'd swear she despises, Anne is one of those characters that never leaves your heart once she takes up residence. While I fell in love with Megan Follows' Anne in the 1985 miniseries of Anne of Green Gables and have watched it, along with its sequels, more times than I can count, and own the most beautiful hardcover 100th anniversary edition of the book, I feel I need to admit my utter failure to ever manage to be able to get into the book. I'm so sorry, L.M. Montgomery! I absolutely adored this graphic novel edition of Anne of Green Gables so much that I'm now determined to move Ms. Montgomery's novel higher up my TBR pile and attempt it again. Kindred spirits the world over, those long time friends of Anne and those meeting her for the first time, are going to be entranced by Mariah Marsden's graphic novel adaptation of this classic. Faithful to the story and characters I know and love, Mariah has made Anne accessible to those who may not have come across her otherwise and reminded those of us who already love her why she will always have a place in our hearts. Brenna Thummler's whimsical illustrations match the story perfectly. She brings out the individual quirks and characters of each person she illustrates. Her bright, cheerful images transport you to Avonlea and make you want to take up residence. Thank you so much to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for the opportunity to read this graphic novel. I hope to see Mariah and Brenna team up again in the near future to tackle Anne sequels in the same format.

Anne of Green Gables has always been one of my favorite children's classics. I really enjoyed this graphic novel adaptation. While there were some things missing, they were minor and the major/most important plot points were all there. I also loved the colorful artwork. This was a fun, quick read.

I received this Graphic Novel from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have been meaning to read Anne of Green Gables for years upon years. About a month ago I picked up the audiobook and decided to listen/read it. I really enjoyed the story. It was so beautiful in it's simplicity. When I saw there was a graphic novel on netgalley, I immediately had to download it and read it. The artwork in this book is spectacular. It's beautifully done and just transports you to the lake of shining waters and makes you feel almost as if you're there with Anne enjoying the day. I loved how simplistic the story was and how placing into a graphic novel just seemed to work. The artwork is simplistic yet complex in its variety of colors and beauty. With reading the book just a few weeks ago, I did notice a bit of the story missing or redone which is completely understandable. You can't fit everything in all the time. I mention this solely for those kids who might decide to read this instead of the book for school. All in all, this graphic novel expertly shows you the simplicity of the story and enhances it with the beautiful artwork. If you love Anne of Green Gables, I highly recommend taking a look at this. It's spectacular!

A thoroughly enjoyable adaptation of a beloved novel. Anne of Green Gables is such a beautifully written story and is so dear to my heart that I wanted to read this...but I was a little hesitant as well. (The new Netflix adaptation of Anne is not a favorite for me). I like my Anne with all her quirks and spunk to retain her positive outlook on life. It's one of her strengths. Marsden did a fabulous job of pulling out the highlights of the book and reworking them into a graphic novel format while retaining some of the beautiful and lyrical language of L.M. Montgomery. It is Anne, and Marilla, and Matthew, and Diana, and Gil, and Josie, and Rachel Lynde that you find in the pages of the original novel. I know these characters and I know this story - that background definitely added to my enjoyment of the book. It's hard to say for sure how someone who hasn't read the novel would experience this, but I imagine that they would find a kindred spirit in Anne and want to read the series. The only reason I didn't give that fifth star was the artwork. I think Thummler did a great job based on my limited exposure to this genre; it is certainly in keeping with the style of other graphic novels I've read. While the background or landscape scenes were lovely, I wished the scenes with the characters would have showcased more of the softness and elegance that I associate with Avonlea, PEI and the time period in general. The novel has a very idyllic feel to me and I didn't feel like all of the artwork captured that.* That is just my personal preference and I still enjoyed this very much! *Not related to this review, but the blurb mentions that Thummler is working on her own graphic novel, which I would pick and read.
