Default This is not OUR little Anne!

Remember when Anne of Green Gables leaned back on the barnyard fence, ran a hand through her shimmering blond hair and tossed off a sexy pout …

You don’t?

Well, maybe you should join the dozens of other outraged readers of the 1908 Canadian classic who have let know, via posts on the Internet retailer’s website, that the most recent edition of L.M. Montgomery’s iconic coming-of-age text — in the public domain since 1993, and therefore publishable by anyone, without permission of the original copyright holder — got it all wrong in the cover art department.

The new book, released in November under the auspices of Amazon’s CreateSpace self-publishing operation and attributed to Lucy Maud Montgomery — the author disliked her full name, preferring Maud or her initials as a byline — features a buxom young woman on the cover, loaded down with flaxen locks. This Anne is a far cry from the skinny, pigtailed red-headed heroine of Montgomery’s famous series of books.

The disparity between the conventional notions of how Anne should look — though they have altered radically over the years since the perky P.E.I. native made her literary debut — and this new sexpot “has certainly created a lot of buzz,” said a spokesperson at the Charlottetown office of The Anne of Green Gables Licensing Authority Inc., the agency set up in 1998 to control and administer the commercial use of images, likenesses, objects and events in the Anne books.

“Montgomery’s iconic Anne is a high-spirited redhead with freckles and a pointed chin, whereas this new Anne is a languid blond with dark roots, a round face and a come-hither look.

“Montgomery’s Anne is skinny, whereas this cover shows a big bosomy vixen in a cowboy outfit. The drive with Matthew down the White Way of Delight is replaced with a roll in the hay.

“It seems weird to package Anne like a soft-porn star.
