Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are in for a big surprise. They are waiting for an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables – but a skinny, red-haired girl turns up instead. 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.
Anne of Green Gables is one of six unforgettable Puffin Classics, brought together for International Women’s Day in a stunning set in celebration of some of the most iconic female writers of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
