From the Back Cover:

In Lucy Maud Montgomery’s ANNE OF GREEN GABLES, Canada’s best known and most beloved novel, Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew, and elderly farm couples on Prince Edward Island, receive an impetuous girl rather than the boy they expected to adopt. A spunky and irresistible orphan, Anne (spelled with an e!) Shirley charms the Cuthberts into letting her stay with them. Soon the Cuthberts grow to love her, as have generations of readers, including Mark Twain, who compared ANNE OF GREEN GABLES to Alice in Wonderland. Twain observed, “the dearest and most lovable child in fiction since the immortal Alice.”

Now available in this definitive text of Montgomery’s 1908 classic and complete with an original afterword by Margaret Atwood, ANNE OF GREEN GABLES is an enchanting and timeless story of real lives and real loves.
