Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5–This clearly written picture-book biography presents insights into a determined and talented individual. As a child, Montgomery recorded her observations in a journal and created stories and poems. When she was 16, one of her poems was published in a newspaper. She continued to polish her writing skills, but her submissions were rejected many times. When her first book, Anne of Green Gables, was published, it quickly became a success, and Montgomery became popular. The charming, folk-art-style illustrations are reminiscent of those in Wallner's other books about remarkable women, including Beatrix Potter (1995) and Grandma Moses (2004, both Holiday House).–Helen Foster James, University of California at San Diego

From Booklist

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
