Lucy Maud Montgomery (Kids Can Read 3)

Of the many books that Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874-1942) penned, she is best known for Anne of Green Gables, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2008. Did you know that this famous and world-renowned story was rejected by several publishers before one agreed to publish it? Coloured illustrations and quick facts about the late Canadian author are included.
