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.


I now understand why this classic is so beloved and the name Anne Shirley a hard one to forget.

There is such charm to this story. It contains honorable themes of family, friendship and forgiveness and delightful, lush illustrations that create both a whimsical and fairytale-esque atmosphere. It will transport you onto a peaceful land where nature prospers and little girls learn to become strong women.


Young readers will find in Anne Shirley a companion whose imagination and dreamfulness will inspire dreams of their own. Perhaps even a… bosom friend!

Anne Shirley, she is quite unlike anybody else. She sees the world differently. She sees beauty where someone else sees plainness. Magic follows wherever she goes. In her wake can be seen flowers… That Is, if she causes no trouble!

Because she is not perfect. Far form it. Her character gets her into trouble more often than imaginable. But she learns, that is true. She is very smart and has honorable goals.

A beautiful and heartfelt graphic novel adaptation.

  1. For me, so much of the appeal of Anne of Green Gables lies in L. M. Montgomery’s prose — not just the dialogue but the descriptive passages, and the ones in which we see inside Anne’s thoughts and feelings. I can see how a graphic novel could convey the plot, the basic story beats, but I would really miss Montgomery’s words. Still, I’m glad you enjoyed it!
