One can't get over the habit of being a little girl all at once. The charming sequel to Anne of Green Gables .
You might think I'd have grown out of getting myself into scrapes now that I'm half past sixteen. But between being vexed by my freckles, taunted by a brazen Jersey cow and kept on my toes by the new twins, Dora and Davy, life at Green Gables is just as eventful as ever.

I do try to be a little more grown-up now that I'm a school teacher. The other day I asked the class, 'If you had three candies in one hand and two in the other, how many would you have altogether?' One of my pupil's piped up, 'A mouthful.' Could you have kept a straight face?!

This is a continuation of Anne's story with all the clever and humorous dialogue that is found in the first book. The characters in this series are some of the best I have ever met.

We all love and know the young, red haired, high spirited and talkative orphan of Green Gables, Anne Shirley (Spelled with an e!). I for one was deeply saddened at the last pages of the first book to see my favourite crew of characters go, but happily found Anne of Avonlea and the other books of the series. I really like this book and I have to say Montgomery is a great author but I mostly lost interest. The main reason I loved the first book was for Anne, but she is rather grown up now and doesn’t talk a lot. There is a nice plotline however, and we see Gilbert and the young members of Avonlea now. Very nicely written! Rating 4/5

Anne grows up and Marilla adopts twins, Davy and Dora. Dora is a very nice girl, but Davy is quite a handful. there are also engagements and a marriage of Miss. Lavender to Mr. Irving. Review by Avonlea Gallant.

I didn't like it as much as the firt book, but it's still really interesting. If you've read the first one, definitely read this one as well. I find these books really hilarious.

I was skeptical about reading it, but wow, it was great. The characters are all so lovable that it makes you hard to put the book down.

I have read anne of avonlea at least 5 times, and loved it more and more each time! however, I did not read this particular copy, and was just looking to see if this copy is abridged (I hope not!) before I add it to a reading list.

Anne of Avonlea can be read 8 and up but perferrably I'd like to say that it might be better for the 11-19 year old group . This choice goes to the age of Anne in the book . It is also a good choice to read the books in order , here is a link to a website to find out .

Sixteen-year-old Anne Shirley is still getting into scrapes. She and Marilla, still mourning after Matthew's death, are suddenly given two twins, Davy and Dora, to raise after their mother dies. Anne and her friends are "improving" Avonlea with the A.V.I.S (Avonlea Village Improvers Society). Anne meets many interesting individuals, such as Mr. Harrison and Miss Lavender. This book is even better than the first!

The page of girlhood had been turned, as by an unseen finger, and the page of womanhood was before her with all its charm and mystery, its pain and gladness.
