    Default Anne of Green Gables

    Anne of Green Gables gets blonde makeover in new cover | CTV News


    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.

    I saw this and I was horrified! A huge part of the story is her red hair! I hate when companies feel that *THIS* is what will sell books. The story is fantastic and can sell itself.

    LOL! This is so funny! Obviously nobody read the book, or saw the movie, or knows anything about Anne of Green Gables.

    Actually, its pretty sad.

    Incredibly thoughtless marketing move.

    On a side note, that does remind me that I wanted to introduce one of my daughters now to "Anne with an E."

    No no no no no no no!

    Anne is a redhead from the early 20th century. That is not Anne.

    I read the entire series (all 8 books) yearly! I think I started when I was 10 reading the series.

    Really hated the prequel they did for the 100th anniversary - they changed the story of Anne's parents, her mom died but her father was an alcoholic who could not look after her.... so very wrong!

    My DD is really freaked out. She says "not only is she not blond, she is not someone that tries to be sexy" She emailed the company
