Anne with an e
You have probably heard about the cover of the new edition of the beloved Anne of Green Gables. For unknown reasons Amazon has republished the book with a new look Anne.
When I was about 10 years old (in the late '70s) our family made a trip down east and we visited the Green Gables house in Cavendish PEI. I came home with a box set of the first three books. Years later, when my niece was around 10 years old (in the late '80s) I offered her the set. She took one look at the cover of these older books and claimed that that was not the real Anne. I still have the set.
Everyone knows that this is the real Anne, as portrayed by Megan Follows in 1985.
I am sharing this with Postcard Friendship Friday, for all the kindred spirits out there.
