About This Book
Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert need someone to help work their farm near the little village of Avonlea. So they decide to “take in” an orphan from a distant city. They ask for a strong, quiet, levelheaded boy. But instead, they are sent Anne Shirley—a strong-willed, talkative, redheaded girl with a quick temper, a wild imagination, and a mind of her own. How will living in this quiet little village change Anne? And how will Anne change the life of the village?
