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 sequels.
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.

"This clearly written picture-book biography presents insights into a determined and talented individual.... The charming, folk-art-style illustrations are reminiscent of those in Wallner's other books about remarkable women, including Beatrix Potter and Grandma Moses." -- Helen Foster James, School Library Journal
