    'Oh, it seems so wonderful that I'm going to live with you and belong to you. I've never belonged to anybody - not really' When a scrawny, freckled girl with bright red hair arrives on Prince Edward Island, Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are taken by surprise; they'd asked the orphanage for a quiet boy to help with the farmwork at Green Gables. But how can you reject a child like an unwanted parcel, especially when she tells you her life so far has been a 'perfect graveyard of unburied hopes'? So the beguiling chatterbox stays. Full of imagination, spark and spirit, it is not long before Anne Shirley wins their hearts.

  • The Selected Journals of L. M. Montgomery

    LM Montgomery

    Product Code: AHKHE
    Paperback
    A bestseller in Canada, this book will fascinate the legions of devoted readers of Anne of Green Gables and Montgomery's other Anne books.
    Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874-1942) kept extensive journals for most of her life, beginning them in 1889 when she was fourteen and continuing them until shortly before her death. Spontaneous and frank, they are unusual for their narrative interest: Montgomery's gifts as a storyteller are as much in evidence here as in her novels. This first volume takes her to 1910, the year before her marriage, and culminates with the publication of Anne of Green Gables.
    The autobiographical content will intrigue every dedicated fan of the Anne books. But the Mongomery journals are especially interesting because they provide a unique social history and the privelege of viewing closely the life of a remarkable woman.
    About the Author:
    Mary Rubio is Literary Adviser to the Estate of L.M. Montgomery and is preparing the authorized biography. Elizabeth Waterston is Professor of English at the University of Guelph. Together they edit CCL: Canadian Children's Literature: A Journal of Criticism and Review

    This new hardback edition of the much-loved story of orphan Anne Shirley has been created in partnership with the world-famous V & A Museum, and has an exquisite cover design from their original William Morris collection.

Feisty and full of spirit, Anne Shirley charms her way into the Cuthberts' affection with her vivid imagination and constant chatter. It's not long before Anne finds herself in trouble, but soon it becomes impossible for the Cuthberts to imagine life without 'their' Anne - and for the people of Avonlea to recall what it was like before this wildly creative little girl whirled into town.

    Paperback
    The seventh book in the Anne Shirley series. 'There was a little unfailing spring, always icy cold and crystal pure, in a certain birch-screened hollow of Rainbow Valley in the lower corner near the marsh. Not a great many people knew of its existence. The manse and Ingleside children knew, of course ...' When the new minister, Reverend John Meredith, arrives at the manse, the village is scandalised by his children's behaviour. He is the best preacher they've ever had, but since his wife died the youngsters have run wild. Anne recognises their kindness, though, and before long the four young Merediths are firm friends with her own six children at Ingleside - and up to all sorts of schemes. They meet at a private hideout - a hollow they call Rainbow Valley - and their adventures range from boisterous escapades to saving the life of a young orphan.
