8. Red as carrots
When Anne cracked her slate over Gilbert Blythe’s head for the crime of calling her “Carrots”, what punishment did the schoolmaster use?
Your answer — A) Whipping with a fair-sized birch switch — was incorrect.
Although Gilbert told the schoolmaster that the incident was his fault for teasing Anne, she was made to stand in front of the class, with everyone looking at her. She was further humiliated by the teacher writing her name on the blackboard without the all-important “e”. It was a long time before Anne forgave Gilbert.
