Hot on the heels of the newly released Peter Pan in Scarlet, the official sequel to Peter Pan, Penguin Canada has announced their plans to publish an official prequel to Anne of Green Gables. They've commissioned Canadian author Budge Wilson to write it, and its release in 2008 will coincide with the 100th anniversary of Anne of Green Gables.I hope they know what a precarious endeavor this is . . . Anne and her creator L. M. Montgomery have some devoted fans!
