From the Back Cover

Share in the joy of an unforgettable Green Gables Christmas—with all the feasts and treats that Anne would have enjoyed. The Anne of Green Gables Treasury shows you how to make these holiday customs of days gone by part of your own Christmas tradition.

From the Dust Jacket

A celebration of Christmas—Green Gables style! Inspired by Lucy Maud Montgomery’s beloved classic Anne of Green Gables, Carolyn Strom Collins and Christina Wyss Eriksson have gathered a fascinating selection of Christmas lore, crafts, cooking and decorating ideas, complete with easy-to-follow instructions and charmingly illustrated with step-by-step drawings and glorious colour photographs.

Learn how to create a Green Gables gingerbread house or make decorations for your home, such as wreaths of roseberries or Matthew’s sleigh-bell door chimes. Delight your friends and family with your own gifts for “kindred spirits”: perhaps a Green Gables tea cosy or Christmas ribbon cushion. You can also recreate the holiday finery that Anne and Diana would have loved, from Anne’s beaded slippers to a velvet muff for those chilly winter nights. And, by following the recipes for festive delicacies such as “Four Winds Roast Goose,” “Mrs. Lynde’s Plum Pudding” and “Marilla’s Ginger Tea,” you can enjoy the sort of traditional meal that would have been served at Green Gables, Anne’s House of Dreams and Ingleside.

With all this and much, much more, The Anne of Green Gables Treasury will be loved by young and old and treasured for many Christmases to come.
