A best-seller from the moment it was published, Anne of Green Gables is a joyful tale that is guaranteed to capture the hearts of today’s young listeners. For over 75 years, this delightful story of a spirited, mischievous girl living in turn-of-the-century Canada has charmed girls around the world. As soon as Anne Shirley arrived at the snug, white farmhouse called Green Gables, she knew she wanted to stay forever... but would the Cuthberts send her back to the orphanage? Anne knows she's not what they expected -- a skinny girl with decidedly red hair and a temper to match. If only she could convince them to let her stay, she'd try very hard not to keep rushing headlong into scrapes or blurt out the very first thing she had to say. Anne was not like anybody else, everyone at Green Gables agreed; she was special -- a girl with an enormous imagination. This orphan girl dreamed of the day when she could call herself Anne of Green Gables.

My review on This novel
I think this book exceeds all others! The enriching vocabulary, the romance, and the comedy of it is sure to make you giggle! You will never want to stop listening if you start!
I must agree
this is the best of the series and the 'reader' is the most vibriant of voices and is most enjoyable!
I suggest that you preview the voice first before purchasing the other books....not all of them are on here either!
A must have for all girls
My grandmother gave, and read this book to me when I was 10. I had to go and live with my grandparents at the time, and reading this book about another girl who lives with an elderly couple was comforting. This remains a classic for all ages.
