The infamous red-haired 11-year-old Canadian orphan who once adorned the cover is now illustrated as a "blonde, buxom and bedroom-eyed cowgirl" on the latest edition, which is currently being sold on Amazon.
And fans weren't afraid to let their feelings be known on the online shopping site.
“The ‘Updated’ cover of this product is terrible," one customer wrote in their book review. "First of all, Anne has red hair. RED HAIR. It’s a key part of her character and is a strong influence on her words and actions.
While another added: “This is nuts, offensive even. That cover image has to be a joke. Anne is a redhead and everyone knows that (or so I thought),” another wrote.
The New York Daily News reported that the cover girl’s “come hither expression seems more appropriate for a lurid romance" than a children's book.
