The sweet and funny second book in a new early-reader series, starring the spirited and outspoken Anne Shirley as she makes friends and settles into life at Green Gables—with a few hijinks along the way, of course!

Anne is nervous and excited to meet Diana, a neighbor girl who she just knows will be a kindred spirit. She’s even more excited when she learns that she’s invited to her very first picnic! Until Marilla’s precious brooch goes missing and it looks like it’s Anne’s fault. That is, Marilla is upset and Anne’s picnic adventure is now in jeopardy. Ultimately, the misunderstanding with the brooch is resolved and Anne is able to go to the picnic. Anne and Diana’s friendship blossoms and Anne’s bond with Matthew and Marilla grows stronger.

Lovingly adapted by Kallie George with beautiful nostalgic illustrations by Abigail Halpin, this series is perfect for fans of Anne, new and old.

Series Overview: An illustrated early-reader series inspired by L. M. Montogomery’s Anne of Green Gables.

ICONIC CHARACTER: This is Anne (with an “e”) for a new, younger generation of children. Those who know the story will recognize the plot and details from the original book.

RENEWED INTEREST IN ANNE: Anne is back in the spotlight with the Netflix/CBC series. Sales for our edition of Anne of Green Gables continue to rise. Anne of Green Gables is included in PBS’s “The Great American Read” for 2018.

PERFECT FOR EARLY READERS: Easy-to-read text divided into nine short chapters is perfect for newly independent readers and also makes for a great bedtime read-aloud.

AWARD-WINNING CHAPTER BOOK WRITER: Kallie has earned many awards and accolades for her other chapter book series. With this new series, she has perfectly captured the spirit of Anne and the world L.M. Montgomery created.

BEAUTIFUL FULL-COLOR ART: Abigail Halpin’s art is charming and classic, full of feeling and joy. Full-color illustrations appear in every spread, encouraging young reader engagement. She has a growing fanbase with over 120k Instagram followers.

PUBLISHING PROGRAM: For our younger Anne fans, we have so far published the picture book Goodnight, Anne as well as two board books, Anne’s Colors and Anne’s Numbers. Another picture book (SP 20) and two more board books (SU 19) are on their way too.

PAPERBACK OF BOOK 1: A trade paperback edition of book 1, Anne Arrives, coincides with the publication of the hardcover of book 2.

KALLIE GEORGE is an author, editor and creative writing teacher. She has written numerous books for early readers, including Anne Arrives (book 1), The Magical Animal Adoption Agency series, The Heartwood Hotel series and The Wings of Olympus series, as well as numerous picture books, such as Goodnight, Anne, Secrets I Know and The Lost Gift. Kallie currently lives in Vancouver, BC, and feels positively certain she and Anne Shirley are kindred spirits.

Author Residence: Vancouver, BC

ABIGAIL HALPIN is an illustrator living in southern Maine, a few miles from the sea. Her illustrations are a blend of traditional and digital media, and she has illustrated many beautiful children's books including Finding Wild, Fort Building Time and, most recently, Mama's Belly. Her parents gave her a copy of Anne of Green Gables for her eighth birthday, which still sits on her bookcase in her studio, and her work for the Anne chapter book series was influenced by her teen memories of Prince Edward Island as one of the most beautiful, magical spots on the planet.
