As soon as Anne Shirley arrived at the snug, white farmhouse called Green Gables, she knew shewanted to stay forever... but would the Cuthbertssend her back to the orphanage? Anne knows she's notwhat they expected -- a skinny girl with decidedlyred hair and a temper to match. If only she couldconvince them to let her stay, she'd try very hardnot to keep rushing headlong into scrapes or blurtout the very first thing she had to say. Anne wasnot like anybody else, everyone at Green Gablesagreed; she was special -- a girl with an enormousimagination. This orphan girl dreamed of the daywhen she could call herself Anne of Green Gables.
