The Lovereading4Kids comment

In the first sequel, Anne is growing up and she is determined to fulfil her ambitions and, as a teacher in her old school, to inspire those who are growing up behind her. Anne has left behind her childish ways but not her enthusiasm and zest for life. Teacher and pupils flourish in this optimistic picture of the first steps towards responsibility. With a superb introduction by Budge Wilson who tells us how Anne managed to inspire him and why it remains so special in his mind. In this terrific pocket size Puffin edition there’s lots of additional material at the end of the book including an author profile, a guide to who’s who plus many activities beyond the book.

Synopsis

Anne of Avonlea (with an introduction by Budge Wilson) by L M Montgomery

The second story in the ever-popular Anne of Green Gables series.

Now Anne is half past sixteen and she s ready to begin a new life teaching in her old school. She s as feisty as ever and is fiercely determined to inspire young hearts with her own ambitions. But some of her pupils are as boisterous and high-spirited as Anne, and so life in her Avonlea classroom becomes a lesson in discovery and adventure.

About the Author

L M Montgomery

L.M. Montgomery achieved international fame in her lifetime, putting Prince Edward Island and Canada on the world literary map. A prolific writer, she published some 500 short stories and poems and twenty novels. Nineteen of the novels were set on Prince Edward Island, even though she lived in Ontario for the last thirty-one years of her life.

Today, Montgomery's novels, journals, letters, short stories, and poems are read and studied by general readers and scholars from around the world. Her writing appeals to people who love beauty and to those who struggle against oppression. In the Second World War, Polish soldiers were issued copies of Montgomery's novels to take to the front. A post-war Japan turned to Anne for lessons in optimism and imagination. A musical based on Montgomery's first best-seller, Anne of Green Gables, has drawn packed houses for over twenty-five years. Recent television movies and series based on her novels have had international success and have made Montgomery a household name once again.
