Graphic novel adaptations of classic novels are an amazing way to dive back in and experience a beloved book in a new way. They are also a great way to share a classic book you love with someone who maybe isn’t as into reading text as you. Many of these graphic novel adaptations are simply beautiful. Remember Jane, a graphic novel version of Jane Eyre?

Anne of Green Gables (A Graphic Novel)
is one of these beautiful books.

The magic of L.M. Montgomery’s treasured classic is reimagined in a whimsically-illustrated graphic novel adaptation perfect for newcomers and kindred spirits alike. When Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert decide to adopt an orphan who can help manage their family farm, they have no idea what delightful trouble awaits them. With flame-red hair and an unstoppable imagination, 11-year-old Anne Shirley takes Green Gables by storm.

Anne’s misadventures bring a little romance to the lives of everyone she meets: her bosom friend, Diana Barry; the town gossip, Mrs. Lynde; and that infuriating tease, Gilbert Blythe. From triumphs and thrills to the depths of despair, Anne turns each everyday moment into something extraordinary. (Goodreads)

Adapted by Mariah Marsden and illustrated by Brenna Thummler, this is a beautiful book you must add to your shelves if you love Anne and Octobers as much as I do!
