The captivating tale of Anne of Green Gables, written by L. M.

This book is one of the cutest, sweetest, and may I say quaintest, novels I've ever read. It's positively heart warming and even the not-so-nice characters strike a loveable chord in my heart.      Every child should read this book, but girls in particular.

The couple lives on their farm called Green Gables of Avonlea in Prince Edward Island, Canada. …

This review might be totally biased because I absolutely adore Anne of Green Gables (I have even been to Prince Edward Island to see the Green Gable). I think you should not stop at this book, and definitely get The Complete Anne of Green Gables Boxed Set, because our lovable redhead's story continues on and many people don't even know about it! (Yes, Gilbert Blythe will still be around!) I won't go into explaining the plot because it is so famous. But I love that as a girl growing …

One of the seminal influences in my life growing up. Worth a good read, especially for nostalgia's sake.

Not a lot of action and kind of long, but there's good humor and Anne is a great heroine.
