Anne: An Adaptation of Anne of Green Gables (Sort Of)
Beloved characters from the classic “Anne of Green Gables” are re-imagined in a modern context in this graphic novel by Canadian author and illustrator Kathleen Gros. Anne Shirley finally finds a home with the Cuthberts in her fifteenth foster home. She grows roots, develops relationships, and explores her identity in this easy-to-read story for intermediate students that may even encourage reluctant readers to connect with the text. In a middle-school classroom, this novel lends itself well for a novel study, as a literature circle resource, or as a choice for independent reading. The book may also inspire projects where students can create their own graphic novels or “zines” using the videos on the author’s website.
