About the book:

The beloved coming-of-age tale of a spunky heroine named Anne "with an E," now for the first time in Penguin Classics and packaged in a Deluxe edition.
L. M. Montgomery's novel Anne of Green Gables recounts the adventures of Anne Shirley, an 11-year-old orphan mistakenly sent to a pair of siblings who intended to adopt a boy to help work on their farm in Prince Edward Island. Yet Anne's quirky personality and good-natured spirit causes the siblings to grow to love her anyway, and soon the entire town falls for the precocious little girl with bright red hair.
Cherished by both children and adults, Anne of Green Gables is a celebration of fierce individualism, and the families we create, rather than the ones we are born into. This Deluxe edition is enhanced with a foreword by bestselling author J. Courtney Sullivan, and an introduction and suggestions for further reading by Benjamin Lefebvre, as well as reviews and a selection of early writing by L. M. Montgomery about the process of writing Anne.

L.M. Montgomery was born on Prince Edward Island in 1874. After she finished grade school in Cavendish, she attended Prince of Wales College in Charlottesville and obtained a teaching license. Montgomery worked as a teacher on Prince Edward Island, but much preferred writing. Between 1897 and 1907, she had over 100 of her short stories published. Montgomery died April 1942 in Toronto from coronary thrombosis.

J. Courtney Sullivan (foreword) is the New York Times best-selling author of the novels The Engagements, Maine, and Commencement. Maine was named a 2011 Time magazine Best Book of the Year and a Washington Post Notable Book. The Engagements was one of People Magazine's Top Ten Books of 2013 and an Irish Times Best Book of the Year, and has been translated into seventeen languages. She has contributed to The New York Times Book Review, the Chicago Tribune, New York magazine, Elle, Glamour, Allure, Real Simple, and O: The Oprah Magazine, among many others.

Benjamin Lefebvre (introduction) is an Assistant Professor of English at Ryerson University. His books include an edition of L.M. Montgomery’s rediscovered final book, The Blythes Are Quoted (2009). He is the director of L.M. Montgomery Online.
