About the product Once an orphan Anya Shirley falls into the house of a Canadian family. There is no limit to the indignation of the mistress of Marilla, because she and her brother Matthew wanted to take a boy from the orphanage, who would become an excellent helper on their Green Gables farm, and here — a girl! Dreamy and spontaneous, incessant chatterbox Anya Shirley does not even think to be upset. Gradually, the girl attracts absolutely all the inhabitants of Avonlea and herself grows into a beautiful modest girl, whose ideals are to do good, to be loyal, albeit not to her relatives, but so close to Marilla and Matthew.
