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 Coralie Bickford-Smith.
