The Lovereading4Kids comment

Anne, once the young heroine of Anne of Green Gables, is now almost grown up – at least in years! She is back in Avonlea as a teacher. Fortunately for all the fans of her younger self, she has not abandoned her wild ways…Anne’s teenage adventures as she straddles her two identities of adult and child are as engaging as all the stories of her childhood. Very collectible, this is an attractive, pocket sized edition of a great story.

If you love a good story, then look no further. Oxford Children's Classics bring together the most unforgettable stories ever told. They're books to treasure and return to again and again. At half past sixteen, Anne is now ready to take her place in Avonlea society as a teacher at her old school.

But although Anne is growing up, she still manages to get into a number of scrapes ...as only she can. This heartwarming tale is a welcome addition to the thriving Oxford Children's Classics series.

About the Author

L 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.
