A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of the enchanting children’s classic. Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert are expecting a child… but the skinny, red-haired girl that turns up is not quite what they had in mind. When orphan Anne Shirley first arrives at Green Gables she sets the quiet island community of Avonlea, on Prince Edward Island, talking of little else. With her incessant chatter and intense imagination, things are never dull with Anne – in fact, they are frequently fiery.
But slowly the islanders realise that beneath the quicksilver tonge and the red-headed temper is a little girl with a heart of gold, who brings a liveliness and warmth to the community that they had never realised was missing. Since its publication in 1908, the story of Anne Shirley has touched a chord in the hearts of readers all over the world: ‘…old pioneers in the Australian bush, girls in India, missionaries in China, monks in remote monasteries, premiers of Great Britain, and red-headed people all over the world have written to me, telling me how they loved Anne’, wrote L.M. Montgomery about her heroine. The infectious liveliness and charm of the novel emanates delightfully from this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.
A klasszikus ifjúsági regény nyelvtanulóknak készített, rövidített, átdolgozott változatai is kölcsönözhetőek mind az Oxford bookworms, mind a Penguin readers sorozatban.
