‘It’s a million times nicer to be Anne of Green Gables than Anne of nowhere in particular, isn’t it?’

My dislikes: Being an orphan, having red hair, people twitting about my red hair, being called ‘carrots’ by Gilbert Blythe.

My likes: Living at the Green Gables with Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, my bosom-friend Diana, dresses with puff sleeves, renaming Barry’s pond the Lake of Shining Waters, coming top of the class.

My regrets: Dying my hair green. Smashing a slate over Gilbert Blythe’s head.

My dream: To be tame my temper. To be good (this is an uphill struggle ). To grow up to have auburn hair!

Reviews

A super cute story about kindred spirits and one of the ultimate examples of true friendship.
