Kathryn Hughes on Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson

Anyone who loves Montgomery's original books (she went on to produce a whole series) will probably be able to read this prequel without minding the occasional jarring note. What may grate, though, is the cover design in which the UK publishers have clothed this Anne of Green Gables for a new generation. While the story works hard towards achieving historical and geographic authenticity, Puffin has given us Anne as a deracinated figure in what appears to be modern dress.

Doesn't 'grate' with me :)
What do you think?
