Following Anne of Green Gables (1908), this book covers the second chapter in the life of Anne Shirley. We learn of Anne's doings from the age of 16 to 18, during the two years that she teaches at Avonlea school. It includes many of the characters from Anne of Green Gables, as well as new ones: Mr. Harrison and his foul-mouthed parrot, Miss Lavendar Lewis, Paul Irving, and the twins Dora (sweet and well behaved) and Davy (mischievious and in constant trouble). Anne matures, slightly, but she gets into a number of her familiar pickles, as only Anne can: She accidentally sells her neighbor's cow (having mistaken it for her own), gets stuck in a broken duck house roof while peeping into a pantry window, and more.

I would love to have Anne as a friend

Would you consider the audio edition of Anne of Avonlea to be better than the print version?

I enjoyed the print and audio version of Anne of Avonlea equally. I do enjoy hearing the stories read allowed as they are familiar favourites and make me feel as though I am visiting friends

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like Marilla Cuthbert because she is the complete opposite of Anne but begins to take on some of Anne's wonderful personality traits.

Which character – as performed by Colleen Winton – was your favourite?

Colleen Winton gave voices to all the characters and I could not choose a favourite because she was a pleasure to listen to and brought life to their personalities.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Listening to Anne is a journey through an array of moments of pleasure, sorrow, laughter, tears. A tumult of emotions.

Any additional comments?

I enjoy these books so much that my dream is to travel to Canada to see where L M Montgomery wrote about Anne.

Classic Story, great narration

Anne is a friend to so many of us, and kindred spirits last much longer than a single book! What a gift it is to watch Anne grow through life, learning as she goes and faithfully nurturing her imagination and her rich friendships. Reading this series is like a vacation to the seashore. I have read it many times and will read it many more.

I really appreciate hearing a Canadian narration! This feels just as it should be for a Canadian classic.
