Anne of Green Gables goes blonde
By QMI Agency
Anne of Green Gables has gotten an unexpected makeover.
And she’s now blonde.
The beloved literary character, typically portrayed as a young redhead with freckles, has been transformed on the cover of a new edition of the Lucy Maud Montgomery classic. She is now a busty blonde propped up against a bail of hay.
Her transformation has not gone unnoticed.
Disapproval of the young girl from Prince Edward Island’s drastic change was voiced by many on Twitter.
“That ‘Anne of Green Gables’ cover has really irked me,” tweeted @AlysinWonderland. “So unnecessary. And inaccurate.”
