This is one of the books that can give you entertainment while at the same time is also able to provide you with some great information. Aside from able to provide readers with interesting descriptions and additional information about the Anne books, it also allows readers to know more about the background of that 19th century life on Prince Edward Island.
I especially love the parts about the receipe, the plants and the part concerning Anne's life in chronological order. And I must say that the authors of this book really have done much work in researching before writing this book. Thnaks for having given us such an informative and lovely book.

Just like the companion books to the Little House series, you'll love this collection of interesting facts, recipes, and projects that make re-reading the Anne books even more rewarding. This book provides the perfect background for so many aspect's of Anne's life, from cooking to schooling to gathering wildflowers. It's a wonderful read for girls just getting into the series as well as us 'old folks' who discovered L.M. Montgomery's magic years ago.

This is a must have book for any dedicated Anne fan.
The pictures are gorgeous. There are great craft ideas and easy recipes. I have made the sponge cake with orange coconut frosting. It was easy and delicious. There are also interesting tidbits about author L.M.Montgomery's life as well as interesting info about the fashions in Anne's time. This would make a great gift idea for any Anne fan, but especially for 10-13 year olds.

This is a wonderful companion book to the Anne of Green Gables series. This treasury book will entertain kids and adult-kids with recipes, crafts, information on Green Gables, quotes from the books and illustrations. I gave this book as a gift to my 25 year old friend and she has really enjoyed it.

This book is truly a treasure for all Anne of Green Gables fans. It has everything from information about L.M. Montgomery, to historical notes, ideas for tea parties and Anne-type crafts to a map of Green Gables and a detailed illustration of the interior of Anne's Green Gables.
