What's Abigail Reading? Anne of Green Gables

Abby has really been enjoying the adventures of Anne Shirley this summer. She likes the book, but then she discovered my wife's VHS tapes of the three movies and she absolutely fell in love with it. Here's her take on Anne of Green Gables, by Lucy Maude Montgomery.

Here's what Abigail says the book is about.

This story is about a girl named Anne who is an orphan and gets adopted by two old people named Marilla and Matthew. Anne finally got to live in a real home. Anne made a new friend named Diana Berry. Then Diana’s mom and dad had a school picnic and it was Anne’s first chance to taste ice cream. Anne loved the ice cream and had a great time at the party. One day Anne invited Diana to have tea. Anne accidentally picked out Marilla’s special wine instead of Raspberry Cordial and got Diana drunk.

Then one winter Diana came over to Anne’s house crying because her little sister was sick and both her parents were at the rally to meet the Prime Minister. Matthew got the doctor and Anne and Diana went to Diana’s house with a bottle of ipecac. Soon they got to the house and Anne asked Mary Joe to boil some water and Diana to bring a change of clothes. Before the doctor came Anne gave every single drop of ipecac. When the doctor came he said that if Anne didn’t give the medicine to the little girl it would have been too late. I am not going to tell you any more.

Here's what Abigail liked best about the book.

I liked the part when Anne helped the little girl because that was kind and if Anne didn’t help, then the little girl would die.

Was there anything that Abigail did nlt like about the book?

I don’t like the part where Anne’s an orphan because then you don’t have parents and you don’t have a real home.

So, how did Abigail rate Anne of Green Gables, by Lucy Maude Montgomery?

She gave it five out of five dolphins.
