Overview

Anne of Green Gables by M.C. Helldorfer, Ellen Beier, Mary-Claire Helldorfer

When Anne Shirley arrives at Green Gables, with its shower of apple blossoms and fields of buttercups, she hopes it will be the place she can call home. It's everything she's ever dreamed of! So when Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert tell her they were expecting a boy orphan -- someone strong enough to help around their farm -- Anne despairs. Is it her flaming red hair they don't like? Or her matching temper? Or her nonstop chatter? If only they'd give her a chance to mend her ways. But spunky Anne has a knack for getting into mischief -- as much as she has for spreading happiness all around her. She's a unique girl. She's Anne of Green Gables.

I read this story, for the first time, when I was a very young girl, about 56 years ago and, since I come from Nova Scotia, I found it very interesting as Prince Edward Island is very close to where I grew up. I've lived in the USA for the last 35 years and have read it several more times through the years. I know it will continue to be read for many years to come by people of all ages, places and cultures. It is a wonderful story that little girls will love and continue to love throughout their lifetime.

L.M. Montgomery's human insight is excellent. She was a very perceptive woman. I LOVE Anne of Green Gables!!! At the age of six (20 years ago) my mother woke me up in the middle of the night laughing and said, 'I'm reading a book about you!' Naturally, this startled me that there could be a book about me in circulation! Her friend had recommended it to her, saying 'You should read Anne of Green Gables, because you're raising her!' I've been a fan of Anne ever since! Reading the book is a good outlet when I feel misunderstood:-'

This book was a wonderful book! Anne had a big imagination, and she used in alot of things. When she had something she didnt like, she imagined it was fancy and in her mind she turned it into something she did like.I loved this book!!!

Could there be any other book more classic and heart warming than this book? I'd say never. It is amazing how much imagiation and wonder is in such an enchanting tale. This young girl is the girl everyone is jealous of because of her radient opinion and imagation.

I have been searching for some time now for a preschool version of Anne for my daughters, who are 5 and 3. I've loved Anne since I was a child and was too impatient to wait for them to be old enough for the full-length series! This book arrived today and I could not be more happy with it. It's beautifully illustrated and adapted perfectly for this age group. I can't wait to give it to my girls for Christmas!

This book was a literary masterpiece; enjoyable for all ages. The characters were realistic, as well as the predicaments they encountered. I think that the main character, Anne was passionate about her likes and dislikes. The first two chapters are a little slow, but once you get into the story, you won't be able to put it down.

The fictional story Anne Of The Green Gables is a very interesting written book .It begins by a prince wanting to adopt a boy from Nova Scotia in Canada. But something does not go right. The day came when the adopted boy was going to meet his or her adoption parent so the doorbell rings and the prince says "come in" the kids and his or hers chaperone that brought the kid from the orphanage to meet this prince. The prince thinks he is getting a boy but sure enough it was a girl. A girl named Anne Shirley. Anne is a very nice lonely girl who has spent most of her live at the orphanage. The prince was very discouraged that he got a girl and he said he did not want her but Anne Shirley said" I have always wanted a actual home to live in not a orphanage". He said "ok" you could stay here for a night or two and see how it works out for you. Anne said ok and said goodbye to the chaperone. The price ended up adopting her. She is now living a wonderful life with the prince. As the days pasted she goes outside and looks around and walks over to the neighbors yard and asked the girl across the street if she would like to be best friends. The best friends said ok and off they did everything together. That is what the story is mostly about. Some negative things that happened in the story is a old lady named Marllina chopped of most of Anne's hair. Anne did not enjoy her new look. But eventually it grew back. Some positive things are that Anne now lives in an actual home that she can call "home" also that she has new best friends that she does everything with. The author wrote this book in a style that I would call very softly and mellow. I did not find this book that exciting I would recommend it to girls that like not so exciting books. I recommend the book Hoot and A Penny From Heaven and P.S Longer Latter later. Some similar books are Anne Of The Avolea and Penny from Haven. Overall I enjoyed this book!
