Review: Anne of Green Gables: A Graphic Novel

Anne of Green Gables: A Graphic Novel Anne of Green Gables: A Graphic Novel by Mariah Marsden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Anne of Green Gables is a classic novel of childhood, adolescence, and finding your place in this world. The book has been read by generations of children and adults alike. In this new adaptation, the story is the same but the pictures are as vivid as anyone's imagination can be.

I am all for turning classic novels into graphic novels--and because this one stays true to Anne, it is the perfect way to embrace more potential readers of the story. There's no reason that someone who can't sit with a 200-page novel should miss out on a great story, since everyone has a different way of taking in information. Because of the graphic novel format, kids who are a little young for the story can read it, as can those who want the same story in a shorter amount of time. The artwork is something that you'll want to spend some time with, and it all comes together to give life to Anne of Green Gables.
