Anne of Green Gables: Patron Saint of Girls Who Ask Too Many Questions by J. Courtney Sullivan
This article has been published on the Literary Hub website. It begins:
My first copy of Anne of Green Gables was an illustrated picture book, a Christmas gift from my parents when I was six or seven. The oversize blue hardcover did not contain the actual text of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s 1908 classic. It offered no hint of the title character’s remarkable voice. Instead, Anne and the people of Avonlea were depicted in fluffy watercolors, everyone’s heads a bit too big for their bodies.
