This is a lovely book about Anne Shirley, an orphan girl who is adopted by Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, two siblings who live together at Green Gables. They quickly find that Anne is quite helpful (talkative) and very imaginative. But whether Anne is doing a play by the creek, or baking a cake for the minister and his wife, she always seems to get into scrapes somehow.
The reason I loved this book is because as you read it, the words turn into pictures, and feelings, and all of the other things that make a good story. Also, some of Anne's scrapes are rather funny (for the reader...not Anne!)
A note from Super Kitty's mamma: this is one of my all-time favorite books...yes, it's a classic, but one that girls have loved for generations! It's not to be missed!
