I first read Anne of Green Gables in fourth grade, and I’ve reread at least twice a year ever since. It suffices to say Anne of Green Gables is my all-time favorite novel, but it’s been so much more than that to me. Anne of Green Gables sparked my passion for writing, for reading, and for finding kindred spirits. As a tribute to this wonderful classic, I decided to discuss the various covers.

 

About Anne of Green Gables:

Everyone’s favorite redhead, the spunky Anne Shirley, begins her adventures at Green Gables, a farm outside Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. When the freckled girl realizes that the elderly Cuthberts wanted to adopt a boy instead, she begins to try to win them and, consequently, the reader, over. (Goodreads)

US

Anne_of_Green-Gables_cover_usThis is the edition I bought a few years ago. I also read this edition when I first read Anne of Green Gables in fourth grade. A true classic — I love how there’s definitely a focus on the color green.

Poland

Anne_of_Green-Gables_cover_polandShowing Anne with the flowers is definitely the right choice — Anne loves nature, and nature loves her more. I don’t think her black clothing is a good choice. Anne is a bright, spirited girl, and that should show in the color of her dress.

Spain

Anne_of_Green-Gables_cover_spainWhat I love most about Anne of Green Gables is the timelessness. I don’t think the Spanish edition manages to convey such timelessness. The cover seems too modern for my taste.

Germany

Anne_of_Green-Gables_cover_germanyI wish Anne could have been colored better. I don’t like this monochrome style.

Portugal

Anne_of_Green-Gables_cover_portugalThis cover is so cute and darling. Anne’s hair has always been a focus of the novel; to put it as the cover is a great decision. The simplicity of the cover truly works.

Ukrania

Anne_of_Green-Gables_cover_ukraniaI don’t particularly like the way Anne has been drawn. Other than that, I think the cover is okay.

What do you think of the covers? Comment to let me know!
