The Anne of Green Gables Storybook by Fiona McHugh


The Anne of Green Gables Storybook by Fiona McHugh

Just in time for the re-release of the award-winning TV mini-series. Beginning in 2007, PBS is broadcasting the famed Anne of Green Gables mini-series: Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea (also known as Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel ) and Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story. All three mini-series will air at least eight times across America through 2008. The film adaptations of Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic novels about the red-haired orphan Anne Shirley were produced by Kevin Sullivan, and they star Megan Follows and the late Colleen Dewhurst. After its debut in 1985 the mini-series earned many awards, including an Emmy for Outstanding Children's Program, a Peabody for Distinguished Broadcasting and 10 Gemini awards. The Anne of Green Gables Storybook is a special book adaptation of Montgomery's original novel. Based on the Sullivan film production, it is illustrated with 76 delightful full-color photographs from the television series. This briefer version has the complete Anne of Green Gables story line in simple language for younger readers. Millions more fans young and old will welcome this endearing version of a children's classic.


Fiona McHugh's adaptation of the film and Montgomery's novel is a faithful precis of the original and has many charms of its own.... McHugh effectively novelizes the screenplay with sparkling dialogue, loving depictions of a place and time now lost, and lively characterizations... The Storybook is a highly enjoyable read -- a careful retelling of the original for younger readers that picks up all the humour and heart of the much-loved classic, without oversimplifying or condescending.--Elizabeth Walker CM Magazine, vol. 14, no. 12 (02/08/2008)
