Inhaltsangabe: In 1908, L. M. Montgomery's classic Anne of Green Gables introduced the charming and memorable Anne Shirley to readers and immortalized scenic Prince Edward Island through the eyes of this unforgettable character. In this lavishly illustrated volume, you can enter the world of Green Gables and bring that world into your own. Learn to prepare an Anne tea party complete with easy recipes Anne would have made; transform your garden into one just like Anne's; learn about Victorian flower language; recreate handicrafts from the Anne books -- sachets, pressed flowers, Anne's flowered hat, and many more; discover details about Anne's day-to-day life at Green Gables as well as what was happening in the real world at the turn of the twentieth century. This special edition features a specially-designed Anne Tour of Prince Edward Island, with four itineraries shaped to different aspects of the Anne experience, so that you will not miss a single site on your trip to the world of Anne of Green Gables! Maps, photographs, even floor plans of Green Gables bring Anne's World to life. A short biography of Anne's creator, L. M. Montgomery, is included along with synopses of all the Anne books. Sprinkled throughout the text are quotations from the Anne books set against more than 150 full-color reproductions of original paintings and sketches, all thoroughly researched and authenticated. Even the page borders have been adapted from wallpaper of the period. For everyone who has read and loved the Anne books, The Anne of Green Gables Treasury recreates Anne's world, brings a magical time and place to life and celebrates 100 years of one of the world's most beloved characters. (Originally published by Viking and Penguin Canada Books in 1991, this new edition is published by Ingleside Impressions.)
Über den Autor: Carolyn Strom Collins and Christina Wyss Eriksson share a love for the work of L. M. Montgomery, the author of the Anne books, and it has inspired them to find out more about Anne and the kind of life she would have lived. They have gathered the results of their research into the beautifully illustrated Anne of Green Gables Treasury as well as The Anne of Green Gables Book of Days and The Anne of Green Gables Christmas Treasury. Both authors live with their families in Minnesota. They founded the L. M. Montgomery Literary Society of Minnesota in 1991. During the summer months Ms. Collins lives on Prince Edward Island and is on staff at the L. M. Montgomery Heritage Museum in Park Corner. Collins and Eriksson are also the authors of other background books inspired by classic works -- The World of Little House, Inside Laura's Little House, My Little House Book of Crafts, The Little House Book of Christmas Crafts, The Little Women Treasury, and Inside the Secret Garden.
