All the charm, delight and spirit of Anne in a modern format—a graphic novel. This well-paced adaptation is a lovely way to introduce young readers to the beloved heroine we’ve known and loved since our own childhoods—with her foibles, stubbornness, penchant for unintended mischief and also her perseverance, zeal, creativity, ingenuity, limitless imagination, steadfast loyalty and her endless search to find beauty in the world—and how that impacted and inspired those around her. It’s a perfect pairing with a cookbook of recipes based on famous and infamous (ahem, raspberry cordial) foods from the series including some recipes from the kitchen of author Lucy Maud Montgomery. A plate of ruby tea biscuits, pot of hot tea and steady supply of Anne books sound like the makings of a cozy afternoon, no?
The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook: Charming Recipes From Anne and Her Friends in Avonlea was written by Kate Macdonald (L. M. Montgomery’s granddaughter) and published by Race Point Publishing.
