Anne of Green Gables
by L. M. Montgomery
Illustrated by Gabriela Dellosso

The complete, original text of one of America's favorite books is brought together with 16 original watercolors commissioned for this deluxe edition.

Since its release in 1908, Anne of Green Gables has captivated readers with its timeless story of a young girl's coming of age. Here we share in the trials and triumphs of Anne Shirley, the impetuous heroine whose spirit and independence have endeared her to children for over 85 years. We meet Anne as a lively eleven-year-old orphan who must win over the Cuthberts (Matthew and his sister Marilla) who have requested a boy from the orphanage to help Matthew with the farm chores. Her endearing idealism proves too hard to resist--even for the rather stern pair. Anne's enthusiasm and determination are not always appreciated by those around her, but she learns from her experiences and never makes the same mistake twice. Into her teens, Anne continues to challenge the rules that try to curb her indomitable spirit, and she is rarely defeated.

This deluxe edition of the first book in the cherished Anne series presents the complete unabridged text from 1908 in a handsome new design, featuring two-color printing throughout and sixteen pages of specially-commissioned full-color illustrations by Gabriela Dellosso. The exquisite watercolors capture the beauty of Prince Edward Island as much as the delightful, beguiling spirit of Anne herself. Anne's classic story is as relevant today as the day it was written, and this beautiful volume will appeal to readers of all ages.
