Anne of Green GablesBook
nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;Matthew and Marilla may not be sure about Anne, but Anne takes one look at Prince Edward Island's red clay roads and the Cuthberts' snug white farmhouse with its distinctive green gables and decides that she's home at last. But will she be able to convince Marilla and Matthew to let her stay?
nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;Armed with only a battered carpetbag and a boundless imagination, Anne charms her way into the Cuthberts' hearts--and into the hearts of readers as well. She truly is, in the words of Mark Twain, "the dearest and most lovable child in fiction since the immortal Alice."

It's been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.
“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” -Anne Shirley
"...it's a million times nicer to be Anne of Green Gables than Anne of nowhere in particular, isn't it?"'
There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting.
Anne :" It is ever so much easier to be good when your clothes are fashionable." :)
That's Ann with an 'e'.
