Rate this:
nbsp;In the years since she arrived at Green Gables, Anne has earned the love and respect of the people of Avonlea--as well as a reputation for getting herself into predicaments. Now sixteen years old--and bound and determined to look after Marilla in the wake of Matthew's death--she's about to begin her job as the town's new schoolteacher. Soon enough she is the one learning lessons, however, as she starts to realize how complicated life can be. In her usual well-intentioned but meddlesome way, Anne is quickly interfering in a new friend's thwarted romance, coping with two new orphans at Green Gables, and getting drawn into the lives of her mostly charming and occasionally exasperating students at Avonlea school.
nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; The once awkward, freckle-faced little girl is now a mature and responsible young woman, but Anne's imaginative spirit is as strong as ever in this sequel to the much-loved Anne of Green Gables .

This is a wonderful continuation of Anne of Green Gables and I really enjoyed. It shows Anne's life after Queens and while she teaches as Avonlea. I really enjoyed thus book. I recommend this book.

This is a continuation of Anne's story with all the clever and humorous dialogue that is found in the first book. The characters in this series are some of the best I have ever met.

We all love and know the young, red haired, high spirited and talkative orphan of Green Gables, Anne Shirley (Spelled with an e!). I for one was deeply saddened at the last pages of the first book to see my favourite crew of characters go, but happily found Anne of Avonlea and the other books of the series. I really like this book and I have to say Montgomery is a great author but I mostly lost interest. The main reason I loved the first book was for Anne, but she is rather grown up now and doesn’t talk a lot. There is a nice plotline however, and we see Gilbert and the young members of Avonlea now. Very nicely written! Rating 4/5

Anne grows up and Marilla adopts twins, Davy and Dora. Dora is a very nice girl, but Davy is quite a handful. there are also engagements and a marriage of Miss. Lavender to Mr. Irving. Review by Avonlea Gallant.

I didn't like it as much as the firt book, but it's still really interesting. If you've read the first one, definitely read this one as well. I find these books really hilarious.

I was skeptical about reading it, but wow, it was great. The characters are all so lovable that it makes you hard to put the book down.

I have read anne of avonlea at least 5 times, and loved it more and more each time! however, I did not read this particular copy, and was just looking to see if this copy is abridged (I hope not!) before I add it to a reading list.

Sixteen-year-old Anne Shirley is still getting into scrapes. She and Marilla, still mourning after Matthew's death, are suddenly given two twins, Davy and Dora, to raise after their mother dies. Anne and her friends are "improving" Avonlea with the A.V.I.S (Avonlea Village Improvers Society). Anne meets many interesting individuals, such as Mr. Harrison and Miss Lavender. This book is even better than the first!

The page of girlhood had been turned, as by an unseen finger, and the page of womanhood was before her with all its charm and mystery, its pain and gladness.
