Anne of Green Gables: A Graphic Novel
When Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables comes to pick up Anne from the orphanage, she talks to him about very interesting things from her imagination. Marilla Cuthbert, Matthew’s sister, is disappointed that Anne is not a boy, but they finally decide that Anne can stay.
Anne has lots of adventures. When she goes to school, she meets a boy named Gilbert Blythe, who teases her about her red hair, so she refuses to make friends with him. When he pulls on her hair, she breaks her slate over his head! Another time, she tried to dye her hair raven black, but, instead, she dyed her hair green so she had to cut her hair short.
This book is a graphic novel interpretation of the classic story. It doesn’t have as much detail as the book, but you still get to know Anne and enjoy her imagination and the trouble she gets herself into. The pictures are not really that great; the people look really strange, and Anne is not very cute. If you just want to know what the story is about, you can read this book pretty fast to find out; but then you should definitely read the original.
