Published 99 years ago, Anne of Green Gables and its sequels continue to appeal to children's imaginations. Thousands of young girls (and boys) have grown up with Anne Shirley as a well-loved companion. But where did she come from? This picture book biography of Lucy Maud (L.M.) Montgomery takes the reader from her birth on Prince Edward Island through her prolific literary career and the "birth" of Anne. The softly colored illustrations evoke the same sense of idyllic peace as Montgomery's own writing.
