Wallace Street was the name of the Street Philippa lived in during their first year of college, and Spook's lane was the name of the street Anne lived in when she was teaching at Summerside High School, during the novel "Anne of Windy Poplars" (published in Europe as "Anne of Windy Willows".)
|Whose aunt was Aunt Jamesina?|
Stella's. "We've rented it, and Stella Maynard is coming, and her aunt is going to keep house for us." Anne and Priscilla had already made these plans, but eventually Philippa convinced them to let her live with them.
|In the chapter entitled "The Summons," one of Anne's school friends dies. Which one is it?|
Ruby Gillis. Ruby Gillis dies of consumption (tuberculosis) after a long struggle. "That good night in the garden was for all time. Anne never saw Ruby in life again."

Pink. "After all, the only real roses are the pink ones. They are the flowers of love and faith." Anne fulfilled her promise made years before, and was Diana's bridesmaid.
|What were Roy Gardner's sisters' names?|
Dorothy and Aline. "Aline Gardner was a younger version of her mother, lacking the cordiality. She endeavoured to be nice, but succeeded only in being haughty and patronizing. Dorothy Gardner was slim and jolly and rather tomboyish." Needless to say Anne preferred Dorothy of the two. Anne and Dorothy remained friends, even after things turned sour with Roy and Anne.
|What did Aunt Jamesina say she had always wanted?|
A yellow silk dress. Aunt Jamesina was jealous of one of Philippa's dresses, "I always wanted a yellow silk dress, but first my mother and then my husband wouldn't hear of it."
|What type of flowers did Gilbert send Anne for Convocation?|
Lilies-of-the-valley. Roy sent her violets, and had earlier sent her both roses and orchids. "It was filled with lilies-of-the-valley, as fresh as those which bloomed in the Green Gables yard when June came to Avonlea. Gilbert Blythe's card lay beside it."
|Which one of the following did not propose to Anne?|
Billy Andrews. Although all four of them wanted to marry her, Billy was the only one who didn't propose... he had his sister Jane, Anne's friend, do it for him!
|At the end of the book, Anne and Gilbert go walking in the woods. What colour dress does she wear?|
Green. "She wore a green dress--not the one she had worn to the wedding, but an old one which Gilbert had told her at a Redmond reception he liked especially."
