Schoolyard rivalries. Baking disasters. Puffed sleeves. Explore the violet vales and glorious green of Avonlea in this spirited adaptation.
The magic of L.M. Montgomery’s treasured classic is reimagined in a whimsically-illustrated graphic novel adaptation perfect for newcomers and kindred spirits alike. When Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert decide to adopt an orphan who can help manage their family farm, they have no idea what delightful trouble awaits them. With flame-red hair and an unstoppable imagination, 11-year-old Anne Shirley takes Green Gables by storm.
Anne’s misadventures bring a little romance to the lives of everyone she meets: her bosom friend, Diana Barry; the town gossip, Mrs. Lynde; and that infuriating tease, Gilbert Blythe. From triumphs and thrills to the depths of despair, Anne turns each everyday moment into something extraordinary.
Not only did I get approved for an e-galley of Anne of Green Gables: A Graphic Novel, I also won a physical Advance Reader’s Copy from the publisher. I was SO excited when it arrived. Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorite stories. The graphic novel did not disappoint! I only have two complaints: Anne’s nose was distracting and sometimes things happened too quickly. Seriously! That’s it! I had fun reading it, and I hope that Mariah Marsden makes the rest of the series into graphic novels as well.
