Anne Arrives by Kallie George
I adored the Lucy Maude Montgomery novels growing up and was excited to see an adaptation available on NetGalley.
This title did not disappoint Kallie George doesn’t stray far from the original book. You still get a good sense of Anne (with an E) and her delightful personality, complete with the highs and lows…or the “depths of despair” as Anne would describe them. This book is the very beginning of the beginning of Anne’s story of her arrival at Green Gables.
The artwork only adds to the charm of this short book. I like to think new readers finding the same delight as I did in the original books in this new version. Sometimes artwork can take away from your own mind’s imagining of what characters and places look like. But that was not the case here, in my opinion.
I look forward to more of Anne’s story.
(This title is due to be published on Sept. 25, 2018. I’m reviewing an edition provided through NetGalley.)
