It has been five years since Anne Shirley first came to the Cuthbert farm on Prince Edward Island, and she is just as full of dreams and schemes at sixteen as she was at eleven. Anne has started teaching at the Avonlea School, where she finds a kindred spirit in Paul Irving, a young student who shares her imagination and whimsy. Anne and her friends attempt to reconcile Paul's father and their friend Miss Lavendar Lewis, who were once childhood sweethearts. Anne may be older, but she has the same knack for getting into trouble and charming everyone she meets. This coming of age story, first published in 1909, is the sequel to Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables.

Lucy Maud Montgomery was born in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, Canada, on November 30, 1874. Her mother died when she was a toddler and her devastated father asked her grandparents to raise her. Her childhood years in Cavendish were very lonely. Lucy's solution at this early age was to create imaginary worlds and people them with imaginary friends. Her creativity was beginning to establish itself in her life. With her studying days over Lucy began a career as a teacher and worked at various Prince Edward Island schools. It was soon obvious to her that she did not enjoy teaching but the benefit was that it gave her time to write. That was now her real passion. Much of her early career was spent writing short stories. Indeed in the decade from 1897 magazines and newspapers published over 100 stories from the prolific young writer. In 1908, Lucy published her first book, the classic, Anne of Green Gables. It was an immediate success and quickly established her career. During her lifetime, Lucy published 20 novels, 530 short stories, 500 poems, and 30 essays. Aware of her fame, by 1920 Lucy began editing and recopying her journals, reframing her life as she wanted it remembered. Lucy Maud Montgomery died on April 24, 1942 in Toronto. A note was found beside her bed, "I have lost my mind by spells and I do not dare think what I may do in those spells. May God forgive me and I hope everyone else will forgive me even if they cannot understand. My position is too awful to endure and nobody realizes it. What an end to a life in which I tried always to do my best." The official cause of death was a coronary thrombosis.

This edition is written in English. However, there is a running Chinese Simplified thesaurus at the bottom of each page for the more difficult English words highlighted in the text. There are many editions of Anne of Avonlea. This edition would be useful if you would like to enrich your Chinese Simplified-English vocabulary, whether for self-improvement or for preparation in advanced of college examinations. Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority compared to "difficult, yet commonly used" English words. Rather than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a variety of meanings in Chinese Simplified, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English without using the notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. This edition is helpful to Chinese Simplified-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL or TOEIC preparation program. Students who are actively building their vocabularies in Chinese Simplified or English may also find this useful for Advanced Placement (AP ) tests.

This book is one of a series of Webster's paperbacks that allows the reader to obtain more value from the experience of reading.
