For Anne and Gilbert Blythe, life in a small village is never dull because of all the entertaining gossip, and what strange and funny tales they hear: about the mischievous twins whose dearest wish comes true when they meet up with a bored and haunted millionaire; or clever Penelope Craig, who considers herself an expert on children -- until she adopts a boy of her own; or Timothy Randebush, a man so eager to keep his brother out of the clutches of a dangerous woman that he spirits her away -- only to fall prey to her charms himself. Filled with unexpected surprises, laughter, and tears, here are fourteen of the Blythes' favorite tales.
L. M. Montgomery was born in 1874 on Prince Edward Island in Canada, the setting of 19 of her 20 novels. Included among these books are her beloved Anne of Green Gables series and a number of other novels and short story collections. She died in Toronto in 1942.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Anne as an Extra Montgomery seems to have been bothered by a great many people asking for more Anne stories when she wanted to move onto new characters. I think that this was her response - Anne with a vengeance. Anne is poked into all the stories as a secondary character - a bit like "Chronicles of Avonlea" but with Anne's presence as more "tacked on". I, however, am an Anne fan and read it anyway. Other than the "forced" Blythe references liberally peppered through the book, the stories are sweet little bits of imagination and wonder. I enjoy them, and I hope that you will too! (the liberal references are the reason why I lowered the rating, but the references aside, it is a great book!)
