Anne with an E : reviewing new Anne of Green Gables books

With Netflix airing the Anne of Green Gables show Anne with an E, I was excited to have the opportunity to read two new Anne of Green Gables books in return honest review courtsey of Netgalley.

Anne of Green Gables is a classic children’s book by L.M Montgomery. If you haven’t read it you are missing a treat. Set in Prince Edward Island, it follows Anne Shirley, an imaginative orphan who has the curse of red hair (her thoughts – not mine. I would love red hair) as she finds her place and self with Marilla and Andrew Cuthbert. The series covers everything; friendship, the meaning of family,community, heartbreak, zest for life, appreciating imagination and books. Once read it is easy to see why the books have been treasured and loved for generations. They are readily available for free on ebooks or at library so you have no excuse not to sink back into bed or sofa with the originals this Autumn.

Title: Anne of Green Gables a graphic novel

Author: Mariah Marsden

Publisher Andrew McMeel Publishing

Genre Children’s Classic , Comic and  Graphic novel

My initial thoughts of the idea of Anne in a graphic form was uncertainty  but what a joy this book is.

An original retelling of the classic children’s book Anne of Green Gables in the form of a graphic novel. The illustrations are delightful and capture the nature and feel of L.M Montgomery’s Avonlea and Anne Shirley. It is a good introduction to the series but will also be loved by those who have already taken Anne to their hearts.
