I was a little skeptical of this book. I mean how can you distill LM Montgomery into a short little picture book?
BUT it really only handles a chapter or two per book (because other books are in the works!), so it isn't wildly condensed.
And it is illustrated by Abigail Halpin who happens to be a favorite of mine.
Floral borders are the best.
Wild roses and Mrs. Lynde puzzling over Matthews unprecedented trip to Carmondy in the middle of the day.
Rachel Lynde going over to grill Marilla about circumstances.
Anne waiting patiently.
The thing about favorite books being turned into illustrated versions is things do not always look exactly how they look in your head. The White Way of Delight looked differently. And it wasn't sunset yet.
I feel like I need to reread this just so I can see if I was missing some details. Because that is entirely possible.
Discussing the burden of red hair.
Communing with the Snow Queen outside her window.
Anne determined to be happy even though she was being sent back.
The red roads of Prince Edward Island
And then the delight of staying and getting to name the geranium on the window sill.
Mrs. Lynde receiving mortal offense.
Anne in high dudgeon.
Anne, crowned and boqueted with wildflowers.
