PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"Did you feel that?"
LAST EDITED ON 02-06-13 AT 10:34 PM (EST)

The world spinning to a sudden halt? I hope nobody got hurt in the meantime...

This is just wrong. WRONG. Lucy Maud Montgomery has to be rolling in her grave, maybe even trying to claw her way out to make things right.

ETA: a new article with much, much more detail.

And how are they going to explain the disappearance of the pigtails being yanked on in class?

The blonde on the book cover is probably related to someone involved in publishing the new edition, and she didn't want to dye her hair for a short photo shoot.

It's still pathetic.

I thought it might turn out to be a strawberry blonde; but no, she's a blonde blonde. And modern. Even the clothing is wrong.

I have to think if MClown was still around she would be quite upset, since she is a PEIer.

I certainly like cute blondes, but this is wrong. What's next, Pippi Longstocking with a 'fro?

My wife's family (on her father's side) is from PEI, so this has got our dander up as well.

Why stop at Pippi Longstocking? How about Paul Bunyan with an ornery disposition and sporting tattoos, tagging trees with graffiti instead of using an axe? Santa Claus with a Fu Manchu while wearing a black cape?

That is wrong on so many levels! She doesn't evoke the character in the book at all!! I liked the comment, "Anne Does Green Gables," LOL.

(Clearly the production manager in charge of the book cover has read none of the books. Is the book in the public domain in Canada? It is in the U.S.)

Copyright duration in Canada is life-of-author + 50 years; Montgomery died in 1942 so it has been p.d. since 1992.

11. "RE: My eyes!"
Yeah, that's why these big bookstores will sometimes have a whole "classics" section with similarly styled covers with drawings or pictures on them that weren't there when the books were first published a century or two ago.

Still, putting a buxom blonde on the cover of a book about a little red-haired girl is beyond the scope of ridiculousness.

Actually, unless a contract with a publisher gives an author, and by extension his/her heirs, the right of approval over cover art, the publisher can market a book with whatever cover they deem salable -- even while the work remains in copyright. The public domain factor doesn't matter in that respect.

Eta: at least that's how it would work here in the US.
