Brief summary: Anne Shirley (Anne with an "E"! Never without) Is an imaginative orphan who is sent to Avonlea, on Prince Edward Island to live with Marilla and Matthew Cuthburt. Marilla is a no-nonsense sort of person, and Matthew is just quiet and puts up with things he doesn't like. However, the Cuthburts had asked for a BOY! And they get Anne. SURPRISE! Anne drives Marilla up a wall, but finds a "kindred spirit" in Matthew.
Comments: This is one of the best known and loved Children's book of all time. This is my second time reading it, and I loved it just as much as I did the first time, if not more. This is a book anyone will enjoy!
Grade/Age level: 8 yrs old and up?? Maybe younger?? Although it's meant as a children's book, anyone of any age will enjoy it!
If you like this book, you might also like . . . Little Women by Lousia May Alcott. Anne and Jo have a strong resemblence in my book.
