Book received from NetGalley.

This is another book that caused me to squeal like a fangirl when NetGalley approved me, and I admit I'm a huge fan of this author's works. I have loved L.M. Montgomery's books ever since my Grandmother bought me my first copy of Anne of Green Gables when I was 8. I'm always thrilled when they find more of her "lost" stories most of which were published in the various magazines of the era. The reasons the book got a 4-star rating was due to many of the stories being a bit extreme in the soppy morality tales of the era and the fact that many were fairly familiar to anyone who has read the majority of Montgomery's novels since she changed various things slightly and reused them. Other than that the stories were cute and quick to read and the explanations at the end of how and where they found them as well as where and when they were originally published just added to the enjoyment of the book for me. This is definitely a must for any L.M. Montgomery fan. ( )
