Called "the sweetest creation of child life yet written" by Mark Twain, Lucy Maud Montgomery's bittersweet tale recounts the adventures of a talkative red-headed orphan. Now this classic tale comes to life in 24 delightfully drawn illustrations. Children will love to color scenes of Anne's arrival at Green Gables -- a farm on Canada's Prince Edward Island -- her classroom scuffle with a rather opinionated young boy, her perilous journey in a leaky boat, and much more. The inspiration for 2016 PBS movie and the 2017 CBC/Netflix Anne mini-series.
