For generations, readers have been charmed by the special world of Green Gables, an old-fashioned farm outside a town called Avonlea. Eleven-year-old Anne Shirley has arrived in this verdant corner of Prince Edward Island only to discover that the Cuthberts, elderly Matthew and his stern sister Marilla, want to adopt a boy, not a feisty redheaded girl. But before they can send her back, Anne, who simply must have more scope for her imagination and a real home wins them over completely.
