This is just so very wrong!!! Anne is NOT blonde and never will be blonde.
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.'
