Day 25 100words100days Retell a classic in words of one syllable

Ai caramba! Using words of one syllable only is HARD! It forces you to think of ways around the simplest multi-syllabic words, such as brother, sister, people. But what do you do about names?

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery is one of my favorite reads. Apologies for making this wonderful story sound as dry as a bad translation! (151 words)


Young Anne lost her mum and dad when she was just a tot. She spent most of her life in homes where she worked hard, but was not loved a whole lot. But she could make up worlds in her mind in which her life was less of a pain.

She had red hair, which she didn’t like, and she loved to talk.

One day, she was sent to a farm to help the folk who lived there. They thought they would be sent a boy, but they got Anne in place of a boy. They soon chose to keep her.

Anne worked hard. She loved to read books and write small tales of her own. She did well in school, she made good friends and had to deal with the loss of a loved one.

She was not good all the time, but then no person in the world is.
