Anne of Green Gables is one of my ALL time favorite books. I especially like this book because the cover is illustrated by Mary Engelbreit. There are no other illustrations in the book, just on the cover. I love this story by L. M. Montgomery. It's a sweet, true to life story of a young girl. Anne (Anne spelled with an 'e') is an orphan who is adopted by a brother and sister who think they are getting a young boy. After the surprise, Anne soon becomes the daughter they never had. Sometimes Anne's imagination gets her in trouble and sometimes it's her quick wit. It's a story for all ages. Both girls and boys will enjoy Anne and her escapades.
