There are many retellings of this wonderful story about Anne, the dreamy, precocious orphan, but as much as I enjoy them, I will always love the original novel. I first read this book as an adult and I couldn’t get enough of it and the sequels which followed. The character of Anne Shirley is unforgettable. As much as she gets under everyone’s skin with her many questions and shortcomings, everyone ends-up loving her.
If you, or a child in your life, is looking for a wonderful book this holiday season, I highly recommend this one. It is a joy to experience!
