Anne of Green Gables: A Graphic Novel by Mariah Marsden (Adapter), Brenna Thummler (Illustrations), L.M. Montgomery

 


 

Schoolyard rivalries. Baking disasters. Puffed sleeves. Explore the violet vales and glorious green of Avonlea in this spirited adaptation.

The magic of L.M. Montgomery’s treasured classic is reimagined in a whimsically-illustrated graphic novel adaptation perfect for newcomers and kindred spirits alike. When Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert decide to adopt an orphan who can help manage their family farm, they have no idea what delightful trouble awaits them. With flame-red hair and an unstoppable imagination, 11-year-old Anne Shirley takes Green Gables by storm.

Anne’s misadventures bring a little romance to the lives of everyone she meets: her bosom friend, Diana Barry; the town gossip, Mrs. Lynde; and that infuriating tease, Gilbert Blythe. From triumphs and thrills to the depths of despair, Anne turns each everyday moment into something extraordinary.



This graphic audio production features multiple narrators including:

  • Sharon Alexander as Anne
  • Rachel Jacobs as Marilla
  • Alan Carlson as Gilbert

 

My Review


I loved this, mine was an audio book, and it brought back all the memories of the books that I've read and the video's that I watched.

The book starts at the beginning, and and goes right up until Anne is ready for collage.

What a great way to share with a child your love of Anne of Green Gables, a book that you and they will never want to end.

This is geared to 7 to 12 year olds to create a new group to endear with this wonderful series, and you will soon find yourself back on Prince Edwards Island, Canada, and bringing the spirit of Anne alive for your child!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Andrews McNeel Audio, and was not required to give a positive review.
