Anne of Avonlea

You might think I'd have grown out of getting myself into scrapes now that I'm half past sixteen. But between being vexed by my freckles, taunted by a brazen Jersey cow and kept on my toes by the new twins, Dora and Davy, life at Green Gables is just as eventful as ever.

I do try to be a little more grown-up now that I'm a school teacher. The other day I asked the class, 'If you had three candies in one hand and two in the other, how many would you have altogether?' One of my pupil's piped up, 'A mouthful.' Could
you have kept a straight face?!

Includes exclusive material: In ‘The Backstory’ you can find out about going to school in Avonlea and learn all about the real Green Gables

Portrait
L. M. Montgomery, known as Maud, was born on Prince Edward Island, off the coast of Canada, in 1874. Maud's mother died when she was just a baby and so she had a rather unhappy childhood growing up in the care of her strict grandparents. She was just sixteen when she had her first poem published. As a young woman she worked as a teacher and although she didn't enjoy it much it gave her lots of time to write. Maud wrote hundred of short stories, poems and novels throughout her life but it was the hugely popular Anne of Green Gables and its sequels that made her famous. She died in 1942.
Zitat
"Anne is a captivating heroine, a whirlwind of energy and good intentions" New Statesman "It's no stretch to suggest that Anne was the Harry Potter of her day" -- Elizabeth Epperly

"Anne of Avonlea" picks up right where "Anne of Green Gables" left off and is just as entertaining as its predecessor. This book spans two years and follows Anne from age 16 to 18. In that time she starts teaching at her old school, makes new acquaintances and kind of becomes a big sister. How come? Marilla decides to adopt a pair of six-year-old twins. One of the two, Davy, is a lively and extremely curious young lad. With him, life definitiely isn't about to get boring in the forseeable future. "Anne of Avonlea" is just as jolly as the series' first installment and I had a good time reading it. I loved seeing how Anne keeps evolving into an independent and determined young woman, and it's highly amusing (and at the same time heart-warming) to see her interacting with her students and adoptive brother. Davy is probably my favourite amongst the new characters - his childlike innocence, curiosity and knack for getting into trouble made me laugh out loud quite a few times. Since I am a romantic at heart I would have wished for more scenes including Anne and Gilbert. Even though he hasn't played a major role just yet, I am already a big fan of his character. All in all, "Anne of Avonlea" is an amazing continuation of "Anne of Green Gables" and leaves you wanting for more, still. If you, like me, can't get enough of this series, you can continue reading with "Anne of the Island".
