The beloved coming-of-age tale of a spunky heroine named Anne “with an E”, for the first time as a Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition, with a foreword by bestselling author J. Courtney Sullivan. Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read
L. M. Montgomery’s novel Anne of Green Gables recounts the adventures of Anne Shirley, an 11-year-old orphan mistakenly sent to a pair of siblings who intended to adopt a boy to help work on their farm in Prince Edward Island. Yet Anne’s quirky personality and good-natured spirit causes the siblings to grow to love her anyway, and soon the entire town falls for the precocious little girl with bright red hair.
Cherished by both children and adults, Anne of Green Gables is a celebration of fierce individualism, and the families we create, rather than the ones we are born into. This Deluxe edition is enhanced with a foreword by bestselling author J. Courtney Sullivan, and an introduction and suggestions for further reading by Benjamin Lefebvre, as well as a selection of early writing by L. M. Montgomery about the process of writing Anne.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely edition So happy that there is finally a Penguin Deluxe Classics ed. of Anne. The front and back covers are very cute, and the inside flaps feature portraits of Marilla and Matthew. Anne is, of course, iconic, and this new edition is really fun.

Editorial Reviews

“Anne is the kind of gal we can all relate to; she screws up a lot, she has a healthy handful of frenemies, she talks back a lot and sometimes wishes she had a different life, a different name, and definitely different hair. But that's what makes [Anne of Green Gables] so perfect for when your real-world anxiety is off the charts. No matter what happens, Anne always finds the beauty in the world.” —Kerri Jarema, Bustle   “Rather than dispense the message that it’s only what’s on the inside that counts, ‘Anne of Green Gables’ conveys something more nuanced, that beauty can be a pleasure, that costumes can provide succor, that the right dress can improve your life — all things that adults know to be true, sometimes, but that we try to simplify for our children.” —Willa Paskin, The New York Times Magazine
