It so happened yesterday that one of my friends asked me to write for a poetry competition, but having lost that urge to write anymore, I was still sparked. And so, there goes my book review, this time in a poetic verse, short and sweet:

Pitter-patter comes the rain
And here comes Anna with an ‘e’ in all her vain
She imagines this and that
In all her dreams power packed

She makes the kids of her age laugh
And even the stoic old people smile
Everyone is so happy and gay
While she cares with all her might owning all her terrible slights

And this will make you as a reader smile
While reminding you of ah,
Those good old happy times
So pick up this one and start right away

And I think my poem more than summarizes the book review with a little imagination put into the mix which by the way is inspired by Ms. Anne of Green Gables.

P.S: Since it is available free of cost on Amazon Kindle version, shop and enjoy…

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
Eleven-year-old orphan Anne Shirley has just arrived at Green Gables, and already her guardians want to send her back. First, she’s not the boy the Cuthberts expected. Second, she talks too much. And even with her generous spirit, the redhead’s a trouble magnet. She gets the neighbor drunk and nearly poisons the pastor!

Still, despite a rocky start, the fiery Anne wins over her guardians and her new community. She enjoys life at Green Gables, excels in school, and earns a coveted scholarship. But when tragedy hits, Anne must choose between her dreams and the only home she’s ever known.

In this beloved coming-of-age story, Lucy Maud Montgomery drew from her own experiences growing up in Canada during the nineteenth century to introduce generations of readers to one of literature’s most original and inspiring characters.

About the author:
The author of the famous Canadian novel Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Maud Montgomery, was born at Clifton, Prince Edward Island. She came to live at Leaskdale, north of Uxbridge Ontario, in 1911 after her wedding with Rev. Ewen Macdonald in Prince Edward Island. Her three children were born at Leaskdale, and she wrote close to a dozen books.
