Everyone's favourite redhead is back with a cool new rendition of this Canadian classic. Anne of Green Gables (by OG Lucy Maud Montgomery) has been adapted by Mariah Marsden and illustrated by Brenna Thummler into a graphic novel. Anne's story has been condensed for an easy and fun read, but still maintains the key plot points (raspberry cordial, life long sorrows, botched baking, puffed sleeves, kindred spirits and, of course, Gilbert Blythe!) everyone loves.
Each page is filled with beautiful illustrations that maintain the pioneer essence of the time but give the story a more modern feel.
Who doesn't love the scene where Matthew picks Anne up at the train station, expecting a boy, only to take home a chatty, imaginative and utterly ridiculous-in-the-best-ways-possible little girl?
Or when nosey Avonlea gossip Rachel Lynde gets up in Marilla's business about where Matthew has gone?
It's great for old fans and newcomers alike. Grab a tissue, this is one story that will get you every time.
