Anne-of-Green-Gables-20th-Anniversary-Collectors-EditionIf you liked the Anne series from Lucy M. Montgomery, chances are that you will love the delightful Canadian miniseries from Kevin Sullivan. The series is amazing, especially the first movie of the trilogy which is worth 5 stars all by itself. This is a classic adaption of the beloved novel and every fan of AoGG should pick up the collectors edition. This collector’s edition includes not only the trilogy (AoGG, Anne… The Sequel, and Anne… The Continuing story), but two extra DVDs featuring 2 documentaries with cast and crew interviews, several missing scenes and lost footage, and the episode that was omitted from the original aired series (probably because it was too sad!!) “Marilla Cuthbert’s Death.” Even if you already have the AoGG version taped on VHS, it is worth buying the complete trilogy collector’s edition just because it is totally worth the additional expenditure.

The complete box set of AoGG is a MUST-HAVE. It is imperative for any Anne fan to own one of these. The 8 volumes series is an unforgettable is probably one of the most enjoyable children’s literature of all time available. This series of books goes through the life of Anne Shirley, an imaginative red-haired orphan adopted by siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert from Green Gables, in Avonlea. You will live her adventures from her early teens, when she first arrives in Avonlea, goes through her adult life and the last book tells the story of her daughter, Rilla. The complete collection include the 8 popular volumes “Anne of Green Gables”, “Anne of the Island”, “Anne of Avonlea”, “Anne of Windy Poplars”, “Anne’s House of Dreams”, “Anne of Ingleside”, “Rainbow Valley”, “Rilla of Ingleside.

If you are looking for a real classic, the 100th Anniversary Edition is what you are looking for : the republished original work, including the original cover art of the beloved book from LMM. Interestingly, this original republished version also contains the typos and the obvious lack of proofreading the book suffered from the fact that publishers did not expect in any way the book to do so well. However, this is not a book for kids (you probably don’t want them to read the typos!), but rather a great book for a fan or a collector. So maybe this Christmas, treat yourself or someone you love with this glimpse of the real Anne’s first publication from 100 years ago!

Because some people did not care for the last movie of the trilogy (Anne… The Continuing Story), which received mixed reviews. AoGG DVD (1986) & its Sequel are, however, two must-have DVDs in you DVD collection.


Lucy Maud Montgomery- The Gift of WingsIf you are a big fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery and her novels, make sure to buy a copy of “Lucy Maud Montgomery: The Gift of Wings” by Mary Rubio.
