Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote Anne of Green Gables more than a century ago and when I first read it more than half a century ago, it was so real, so much like the world I grew up in, I didn't realize at first that it had been published in 1908. While Prince Edward Island is not the only island in the world, it is part of a rare minority of places to live that are islands. by Joanne Reid
Ask me anything A blog dedicated to everything "Anne of Green Gables". May that be quotes, movie clips, screen-caps, modern inspired clothing, or even crafts!
My favorite as a kid, followed very closely by "Kentucky Derby Winner," a fictionalized historical about the first winner, Aristedes, of the first ever Kentucky Derby. I was a girl who kept waiting every year for my father to win a yearling thoroughbread in an annual tobacco company contest.
Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea, and Anne of the Island have been read over and over and over again. I think the first one is my favorite because heedless, romantic, optimistic Anne is constantly getting herself in trouble and the results are hilarious. The next two books are still funny but Anne learns prudence as she gets older, so her mistakes aren't quite as childish. Overall just warm, good-hearted novels.
I love this SO much! Anne of Green Gables book cover, illustrated by Claire Keane. She is the granddaughter of Bill Keane who did all the Family Circus cartoons, and the daughter of Gen Keane who worked on Disney movies like Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid.
