Emily of New Moon

Cover Art of Forthcoming NCL Reissue of Emily of New Moon

McClelland & Stewart has released artwork for its reissue of the New Canadian Library edition of Emily of New Moon, due out on 4 December 2007!

This edition will precede the NCL reissue of Anne of Green Gables, due out in late January 2008.

NCL Reissue of Anne of Green Gables

McClelland and Stewart will reissue its New Canadian Library edition of Anne of Green Gables early in 2008. This edition, first published in 1992, includes an afterword by Margaret Atwood. Here are the covers for both the current edition and the new one. Their NCL edition of Emily of New Moon (with an afterword by Alice Munro, first published in 1989) will likewise be reissued, in late 2007, but the new cover is not yet available.

New Emily of New Moon animated series! (Updated!!)

A new animated series based on Emily of New Moon is coming to Japanese television! The official website can be found here.

Update from Yuka:

I looked at the web site of Emily animation. It will be on the
national TV station NHK’s educational channel. They have total 26
episodes; 25 min each (starting 7:25 am).

April 7 (Sat) Wind girl
April 14 (Sat) Pride of the Murrays
April 21 (Sat) A queer/strange child Ilse
April 28 (Sat) Sketche(s) of the four (Emily, Ilse, Teddy, Perry)

I found the following site giving you a bit more information on the
animation:

Responding to the question of whether it will be dubbed into English, Yuka adds:

Last year, four of the animation staff came to visit me at the
Osborne. They said that they are planning to sell the broadcast right
to foreign countries. Japanese animations are quite popular in south
eastern countries and European countries too. So it must happen
sooner or later. But I didn’t find out when.

Professor Akamatsu, has been much more active consulting on the
project, so perhaps she will know when it gets translated before I
do. But nothing’s clear at the moment.

It’s worth noting that the 1979 animated series Akage no An has never (at least to my knowledge) been dubbed into English, although I do remember seeing a few episodes in French while growing up in Québec in the 1980s.
