Book Review: Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery

Book Review Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery

With the way, I had written the review of Anne of Green Gables, the same way I am penning down the review of Anne of Avonlea this time. Since I am writing a poem or a verse after so long, please ignore the rhyming or such thereby:

Anna with an ‘e’, it seems she has settled down
As the favorite teacher of all
But her imagination still runs wild
Wild in the dreamy sort of way one who knows such things would love

Anne evokes love and respect among most
But is she not still a kid herself at such a tender age of sweet sixteen
And oh my my, what do we see
She has adopted the twins who keeps her hands full

There are friends aplenty, the same ones she had before
And a few new ones enchanted by her
She is vivacious, the charm of all gatherings
With such modesty that is natural to her

She makes her mind at A.V.I.S, you want to know what it is?
And if she will find her prince charming, the image of bookish perfect guy
What, I am not giving any more away
Pick up this one and start right away, but only after you have read Anne of Green Gables

Book Blurb:
A “kindred spirit” of readers around the world

At sixteen, Anne is both exhilarated and slightly terrified to be teaching at the Avonlea schoolhouse. But she’s determined to win the heart of every student–especially troublemaker Anthony Pye. After all, she still knows a thing or two about troublemaking herself…

With rambunctious six-year-old twins staying at Green Gables, a village “improvement” project that goes disastrously wrong, and her college entrance exams to study for, Anne will more than have her hands full. At least her best friend Diana and tormentor-turned-ally, the dashing Gilbert Blythe, will be there to help see her through.

Inspiring the dreamer in all of us, Anne is hailed as a favorite by everyone from Mark Twain to Duchess Kate.
