Originally published in 1908, Anne of Green Gables follows the adventures of the spirited Anne Shirley. When farm-owning siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert want to adopt a boy to help them around their farm, the orphanage sends them the active, imaginative, and red-headed Anne instead. Despite their initial reservations, Anne becomes the heart of the family, community, and generations of readers.
L.M. Montgomery (1874–1942) was a Canadian writer, born on Prince Edward Island. In 1908, she published Anne of Green Gables, her most successful work and the start of a series of novels.

In 1935, Montgomery was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire for her contributions to literature.
