Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Maud Montgomery

Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Maud Montgomery
*** (3 stars from Jack)
*****  (5 stars from Katie)
I absolutely LOVED it. My sister and I were talking about it and we both said we wished it never ended. Anne is a talkative girl who, after some trouble, is adopted by Marilla and Mathew Cuthbert who live on an enchanting (a very "Anne" word to use) farm called Green Gables. In the series you follow Anne as she grows up, learns valuable lessons and meets lifelong friends. Very over the top hilarious. It's a good read aloud for any age but Ms. Montgomery does use challenging language for the young reader. If you liked Pollyanna or Heidi, then you will love this book!!
Jack said he gave it three stars because there wasn't enough action. So maybe more of a book for girls. :)

  1. This book is well loved in our house - great review!

    FYI - the fun does not end! There are 8 Anne books, the last two are more about her children, but she is there too.
