Anne of Green Gables (and the books that came after) saw me through my elementary and middle school years.
I had red hair as a youngster (I have to dye it back to the original color these days.) I also had an overactive imagination. I read too much and almost preferred the worlds of my imagination to real life. I learned so much from her.
I know I'm not the only teenager that felt a strong connection to the character. Millions of young people did, and continue to. Apparently she is also huge in Japan.
My friends and I were a bit disheartened when we saw that CBC was going to make another Anne movie. As you can see, the miniseries form the 80's is rather close to my heart.
I have this dream. I'd love to make a pilgrimage to Prince Edward Island. I want to see the house in Cavendish. I want to have tea... or Raspberry Cordial...
Who wants to go with me?
(Can you tell this was mainly an excuse to use my many GIFs?)
