Anne is home from Queen's. Now sixteen and a teacher, it is time to settle down and stay out of trouble. But trouble and Anne Shirley always seem to find each other.
Dolly, Anne's Jersey cow, is always getting in to Mr. Harrison's field. Mr. Harrision, a "crank" according to Rachel Lynde, was upset. So when Anne saw Dolly one day in his field Anne sold her on the spot. But when she arrived home there was Dolly. Anne had just sold Mr. Harrision's Jersey. Just the start of another quiet day for Anne.
Mark Twain described Anne as "the most moving and delightful child of fiction since the immortal Alice." The "Anne" books have been best sellers since 1908.
