From the Inside Flap
Anne Shirley, with her boundless imagination and heart, slowly brings joy into the narrow lives of those around her, and into the lives of readers who have delighted in her adventures since Lucy Maud Montgomery began writing about her in 1905.
Anne?s courage, her enthusiasm, and her ability to love, have made her one of literature?s most beloved characters in Canada and around the world.
This beautifully illustrated volume, with a foreword by Kate Macdonald Butler, one of L. M. Montgomery?s grandchildren, is a treasure for those who find in Anne a familiar friend as well as for those who are discovering this ?kindred spirit? for the first time. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series, and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. Pre-order the official script book today. Kindle | Hardcover

The "Updated" cover of this product is terrible. First of all, Anne has red hair. RED HAIR. It's a key part of her character and is a strong influence on her words and actions. Secondly, Anne is 10 at the start of the series. What is up with the bedroom eyes? Did they just do a Google image search for Sexy Farmgirl? Does anyone publishing this book have any idea of what the stories are actually about?
Ugh, so disappointing. Please buy Anne of Green Gables! But please don't buy this stupid version! KEEP ANNE GINGER!
1. What's that blonde sugarplum doing on the cover of Anne of Green Gables?
2. What was the publisher thinking?
3. Didn't the cover designer read the story?
1. The photo of the blonde girl in the plaid shirt is a piece of cheap stock photography. It wasn't created specifically for these books. The photographer who took it had no idea where it would wind up. All he did was consign it to a stock art service. Some time later, the person who put this edition together paid a small fee for the non-exclusive right to use the image.
2. The publisher was thinking "Hey, free money!"
These novels are out of copyright. That means anyone can republish them. This particular omnibus edition was produced via CreateSpace, Amazon's mediocre print-on-demand operation, so the publisher didn't even have to put up much money. All it took was interior text, cover, a few pages of frontmatter, and a CreateSpace account. Amazon does the rest and gets paid for it.
When I say "publisher," don't imagine professionals working in a New York office. This edition was slapped together by someone sitting at a computer somewhere, swapping and manipulating files without reading them. You can tell they don't know or care about books. They know zero about book design, and they leave blatant errors uncorrected -- just look at the centering on the title page. They don't give the publisher's name on the title or copyright page, but they do claim copyright on the edition, which is a piece of bleeping effrontery.
The interior text has been stolen from some other publisher's edition, and has gotten seriously messed up in the process.Read more ›
If Anne had showed up at Green Gables looking like this, Marilla would have thrown her out with the bath water, and none of the rest of the series would have been written. What is the publisher THINKING??
