Written as fiction for readers of all ages, the literary classic has been considered a children's novel since the mid-twentieth century. It recounts the adventures of Anne Shirley, a young orphan girl mistakenly sent to Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, a middle-aged brother and sister who have a farm on Prince Edward Island and who had intended to adopt a boy to help them. The novel recounts how Anne makes her way with the Cuthberts, in school and within the town.
Since publication, Anne of Green Gables has sold more than 50 million copies and has been translated into 20 languages.
Marigold Lesley doesn't think it strange at all to hold fascinating conversations with her cat. She also sees nothing wrong with having an invisible best friend who lives in the orchard. But as Marigold starts to get older, her family is hoping she'll be a little less fanciful and a little more sensible.
Yet how is it possible to be sensible when you meet a girl who claims to be a princess? Or when someone mistakes you for a girl who died? For Marigold, every day brings a bit of magic—and she wouldn't have it any other way.
