Anne is a feisty, strong willed, opinionated book, language and story lover who is taken in by Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert. I, like lots of girls, and boys, for that matter, fell in love with Anne and all of the Anne of Green Gables books. They are the kind of books that take you away to a different time and place. My friend Grace is studying the Anne of Green Gables books as her opening project this school year. I have to say that I am a little jealous because I really love Anne and puffed sleeves (I am wearing them today!!!).
