Perhaps Amazon wasn't aware red pigtails are as much a part of Anne Shirley's identity as is her imagination and her gift of gab.
It will be interesting to see how they deal with the fallout of featuring a blonde Anne of Green Gables on the cover of a new 'Three- in One Set' collection of the classic novels by Lucy Maud Montgomery.
The collection is published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform -- which is owned by Amazon and sold on the site.
Calgary blogger Mike Morrison writes: 'Today will forever be known as the day the ginger died.' Josie Leavitt pleads with all publishers to 'please design the cover after you've read the book.'
This is just so very wrong!!! Anne is NOT blonde and never will be blonde.
