I’ve kept a handful of my classic books from childhood, and the Anne of Green Gables series is one I have read for a while, so whilst on leave I started re-reading them all, and last week finished the final one.
- Anne of Green Gables
- Anne of Avonlea
- Anne of the Island
- Anne of Windy Willows
- Anne’s House of Dreams
- Anne of Ingleside
Next step will be the Emily of New Moon, and I’ve been told there are others I’ve not read! And at some point I am determined to visit Prince Edward Island to see (the fictional) home of Anne (if I can go and see Juliet’s fictional home in Verona, why not…)
There’s quite a lot of interesting extra information on Wikipedia about Anne of Green Gables – I always like a bit of back story!
And this bit from the first novel made me laugh – parents have always worried that their children’s hobbies are unhealthy and addictive:
