Not The Anne Shirley I Know

As a child, I loved the Anne of Green Gables novels. But it seems a publisher has set out to crush these wonderful childhood memories.

The book-loving internet world is, justifiably, outraged by an Anne of Green Gables cover Create Space Independent Publishing Platform has put on a new edition of the classic. The updated book cover features an Anne Shirley that differs slightly from the old image of the beloved fictional character. Let’s take a look shall we?

My, my, Anne has certainly undergone a makeover. It’s all a bit jarring considering the novels describe Anne as red-haired and freckle-faced. Suddenly there is voluminous blonde hair, a sultry smirk, and boobs!

What’s next? The Boxcar Children with tattoos?
