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
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
I like Marilla Cuthbert because she is the complete opposite of Anne but begins to take on some of Anne's wonderful personality traits.
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.
Listening to Anne is a journey through an array of moments of pleasure, sorrow, laughter, tears. A tumult of emotions.
I enjoy these books so much that my dream is to travel to Canada to see where L M Montgomery wrote about Anne.
