Anne of Avonlea, Paperback / softback Book

Anne of Avonlea Paperback / softback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

The second book in the Anne Shirley series. 'Having adventures comes natural to some people,' said Anne serenely. 'You just have a gift for them or you haven't.'Five years ago, Anne arrived at Avonlea a skinny orphan without a friend in the world; now it would be impossible to imagine Green Gables without her.

Anne's high spirits and warm heart have won her a family and friends who love her.

But when she starts a job as a teacher at her old school, the real test of her character begins: at 'half past sixteen', she's not much older than her pupils and has a lot to prove.

How can she inspire a love of learning in young minds - especially when some of her students are even naughtier than she ever was?This is a collection of the best children's literature, curated by Virago, which will be coveted by children and adults alike.

These are timeless tales with beautiful covers, that will be treasured and shared across the generations.

Some titles you will already know; some will be new to you, but there are stories for everyone to love, whatever your age.

Our list includes Nina Bawden (Carrie's War, The Peppermint Pig), Rumer Godden (The Dark Horse, An Episode of Sparrows), Joan Aiken (The Serial Garden, The Gift Giving) E.

Nesbit (The Psammead Trilogy, The Bastable Trilogy, The Railway Children), Frances Hodgson Burnett (The Little Princess,The Secret Garden) and Susan Coolidge (The What Katy Did Trilogy).
