Anne's Kindred Spirits Inspired by Anne of Green Gables

The sweet and funny second book in a new early reader series starring the spirited and outspoken Anne Shirley as she makes friends and settles into life at Green Gables with a few hijinks along the way of courseAnne is nervous and excited to meet Diana a neighbor girl who she just knows will. I was so happy to see this follow up to Anne Arrives Inspired by Anne of Green Gables Much like the first book in this series only one small part of Anne s story is told in an abridged manner Each two page spread has some story on one side and a lovely illustration on the other These books are a wonderful way to introduce very young children to the wonderful world of Anne of Green Gables Perfect as a stepping stone between picture books and chapter books this book would be wonderful to read together45 stars rounded up to 5 Thank you to NetGalley and Tundra Books for providing me with a DRC of this book

Be a kindred spirit She's even excited when she learns that she's invited to her very first picnic Until Marilla's precious brooch goes missing and it looks like it's Anne's fault That is Marilla is upset and Anne's picnic adventure is now in jeopardy Ultimately the misunderstanding with th. After having absolutely and utterly despised the first of Kallie George s based on LM Montgomery s Anne of Green Gables chapter books after totally hating Anne Arrives with every fibre of my being I do have to admit that the second instalment of the series that Anne s Kindred Spirits definitely is just a wee bit better and as such also somewhat readable than Anne Arrives However saying that Anne s Kindred Spirits has been to and for me a marginally better reading experience than the first book than Anne Arrives really does not mean all that much either For truth be told I still have not really all that much found Anne s Kindred Spirits enjoyable and certainly not in any manner engaging and delightful with Kallie George s adapted text from LM Montgomery s timeless classic of course still not in any manner having even remotely enough narrational substance to it and still showing not only Anne Shirley but basically all of the featured and presented characters as thin as paper dolls cardboard cutouts with nothing to them except and indeed that they are seriously lacking in nuance and development And although in the amethyst brooch episode the author at least makes a few references to Anne s imagination and that her forced confession to Marilla is so believable because Anne is indeed imaginative enough to think of and perform a very believable confessionary act even there in my opinion Kallie George basically just very uickly and lightly scratches the surface so to speak so that at best with Anne s Kindred Spirits we are once again given mere outlines of what LM Montgomery s characters are supposed to be like but nothing and yes indeed and truthfully actually considerably less Combined with the fact that I aesthetically also do consider Abigail Halpin s accompanying artwork as often rather visually ugly the artificially red cheeks seem to look like scratch marks and bruises to and for my eyes Diana Barry is depicted is visually rendered by Halpin as not just plump but basically totally suarely obese and Marilla well she continues to look mostly like a gaunt and witch like creature to me I still really cannot and will not consider than one star for Anne s Kindred Spirits a higher one star ranking than Anne Arrives of course but no not yet two stars by any stretch of the imagination for to top it all off just like with Anne Arrives in Anne s Kindred Spirits author Kallie George once again and sadly frustratingly obviously does not feel the need to pay homage to LM Montgomery to actually honour the original author of Anne of Green Gables for while yes indeed it is mentioned that Anne s Kindred Spirits is based on and inspired by Anne of Green Gables LM Montgomery s name is never once actually pointed out which I for one totally and absolutely cannot accept and also do find majorly insulting to both Montgomery s memory and to her oeuvre
