Genre: Life, short stories
Series: The sequel is Further Chronicles of Avonlea, but it's not imperative to read them even in order. Oh, and they're kinda...more stories about the people you meet (and some you don't) in Anne of Green Gables and its seven sequels.
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8
Number of pages: 183
Time period: 1800's
Main characters: It's a variety of short stories. You do see Anne Shirley a few times.
Exciting events: The book is full of humorous and sweet stories.
Passage from book: Anne Shirley was curled up on the window seat of Theodora Dix's sitting-room one Saturday evening, looking dreamily afar at some fair starland beyond the hills of sunset. Anne was visiting for a fortnight of her vacation at Echo Lodge, where Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Irving were spending the summer, and she often ran over to the old Dix homestead to chat for awhile with Theodora. They had had their chat out, on this particular evening, and Anne was giving herself over to the delight of building an air-castle.
My overall opinion: It was a very fun book, and worth buying. :) You can get it cheaply on Amazon, FYI. Fun to hear more about the people Anne knew!
