Since its publication in 1908, Anne of Green Gables has become one of the most-read and best-loved stories in the world. Translated into more than twenty languages and with at least fifty million copies sold worldwide, L.M. Montgomery's classic novel has made her talkative and impulsive heroine Anne Shirley not only a Canadian icon but an international treasure as well. As inspiring today as it was a hundred years ago, Anne of Green Gables remains a testament to the powers of hope, friendship, and imagination.
This special gift edition, authorized by the heirs of L.M. Montgomery to commemorate the hundreth anniversary of the first publication of the novel, features a note from two of Montgomery's grandchildren and classic black and white illustrations throughout. 304 pages, hardcover.
