New in the Little People, Big Dreams series, discover the incredible life of Lucy Maud Montgomery. The text and illustrations show Lucy as a child standing with her grumpy grandparents, watching her father sail away after the death of his wife. Maud (as she preferred to be called) loved reading, but her grandparents thought it was a waste of time. Because she no longer had books to read, she began to write her own stories. This continued as she grew older and worked as a teacher. When she returned to her village to care for her grandmother after her grandfather's death, she read about an elderly couple in the newspaper. They had wanted to adopt a young boy to help on their farm, but getting a girl instead. From that news article, the story of Anne of Green Gables was born. This is a child friendly biography with delightful illustrations. It is a story that shows a young woman striving to achieve her dream. This book could be used to teach young children how to write a biography, show that it is important to have a dream and strive to achieve it as well as to introduce a great Canadian author to a new generation. I really enjoyed this book as I have had read the Anne of Green Gable books, watched several movies and television shows, been to LM Montgomery's birthplace and seen Anne of Green Gables performed in Charlottetown. A good book for a school library. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book to read via netgalley. The rating, opinions and ideas stated are my own. 4.5 stars rounded up to 5 stars. ( )

Lucy Maud Montgomery is best known for her Anne of Green Gables. This Little People book tells the story of her life from early childhood on. Wonderful illustrations accompany the story. ( )

I loved this story about the birth of Anne of Green Gables. To think that L. M. Montgomery was envisioning her own wanted life when she created that precocious little girl. And while it sits firmly as a classic today, that once it was rejected by 14 publishers. This book is not rejected. It a fun and fascinating look at the life of a woman who brought special life to another through the written word. ( )

I received this e-book ARC of Lucy Maud Montgomery (Little People, BIG DREAMS series) through Net Galley from Quarto Publishing Group - Frances Lincoln Children's Books in exchange for a truthful review.

Oh, how I loved this little treasure! I have seen other titles in the "Little People, BIG DREAMS" series at my public library, and I was delighted to see that a title on the life of L.M. Montgomery, one of my favorite authors, would be added to the series.
The title is a juvenile biography, geared towards elementary school-aged children. The illustrations are in beautiful tones and enhance this short memoir of L.M. Montgomery's life, showing parallels with her childhood and those of Anne from Anne of Green Gables. While not a very long book, it ends with a list of references to other titles if the reader would like more information on L.M. Montgomery. ( )
