Although it is considered a children's book nowadays (according to Wikipedia) I believe the author was right to consider the book suitable for all ages. I think it might be difficult for younger readers to sympathize with an overly and untimely mature Anne, especially in the beginning of the novel. Furthermore the subtle comedy of Anne's grave sobriety might be missed or misunderstood. However that is somewhat compensated by all the trouble she keeps getting into.
I found the novel very romantic, sweetly innocent without being naive with a strong moral side to the story.
