Before she grew up to be a best-selling author, young Lucy Maud Montgomery was raised by her grandparents on Prince Edward Island. Imaginative and tenacious, she loved to write. When Maud was sixteen, she published her first poem, but it took years of hard work and perseverance before she published her masterpiece, Anne of Green Gables, and its sequals. Complemented by her charming, folk-art paintings and a simple, lively text, Alexandra Wallner tells the story of Lucy Maud Montgomery, whose books captivated the hearts of readers throughout the world.

In this picture-book biography, the author-illustrator of Grandma Moses (2004) and Abigail Adams (2001) chronicles the life of Lucy Maud Montgomery, the writer best known for Anne of Green Gables and its sequels. The straightforward text traces Montgomery's life, including her childhood with her grandparents on Prince Edward Island, her education, her career as a writer, her years as a minister's wife, and the honors that came to her as the writer of the Anne series. Lists of Montgomery's books, source notes for quotes, and a bibliography are appended. Wallner's clean, spare paintings capture the writer's life and times in scenes created with a light palette and an innocent, folk-art look. A good introduction to the life of a Canadian writer who is beloved around the world. Carolyn Phelan
