Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

When Marilla Cuthbert's brother, Matthew, returns home to Green Gables with a chatty redheaded orphan girl, Marilla exclaims, "But we asked for a boy. We have no use for a girl." It's not long, though, before the Cuthberts can't imagine how they could ever do without young Anne of Green Gables--but not for the original reasons they sought an orphan. Somewhere between the time Anne "confesses" to losing Marilla's amethyst pin (which she never took) in hopes of being allowed to go to a picnic, and when Anne accidentally dyes her hated carrot-red hair green, Marilla says to Matthew, "One thing's for certain, no house that Anne's in will ever be dull." And no book that she's in will be, either. This adapted version of the classic, Anne of Green Gables, introduces younger readers to the irrepressible heroine of L.M. Montgomery's many stories. Adapter M.C. Helldorfer includes only a few of Anne's mirthful and poignant adventures, yet manages to capture the freshness of one of children's literature's spunkiest, most beloved characters. There's just enough to make beginning readers want more--luckily, there's a lot more in the originals! Illustrator Ellen Beier creates vibrant pictures to portray the beauty of the land around Green Gables and the spirited nature of Anne herself. (Ages 5 to 8) --Emilie Coulter

From School Library Journal

Grade 2–4—Kessler reduces Montgomery's delightfully descriptive narrative to a bare-bones, easy-to-read plot summation. Though much of the dialogue and phrasing are taken directly from the original, this version suffers from abrupt transitions and loses much of its warmth, wit, and literary finesse. While the basic events of Anne's life and relationships are clearly conveyed, the adaptation lacks spirit, and the vivacious protagonist comes across as flat. Her maturation from girl to young woman, which develops naturally over the course of the novel, seems all too sudden and unsatisfying in this picture-book rendition. Any sense of the time period and the colorful setting-which are so vividly expressed in Montgomery's writing—are conveyed here only through the warm-hued full-page and spot illustrations. Young readers would do better to wait until they have the necessary vocabulary and skills to experience the real thing.—Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal
