Back Cover Text
“The sweetest creation of childlife yet written” was how Mark Twain described Anne, heroine of the popular series of books that began with Anne of Green Gables. This, the sixth book in the series, tells of the childhood of Anne’s own children, Jem, Shirley, Walter, and the twins, Nan and Di. All the joys and struggles of childhood are depicted in this vivid story of the lively Blythe youngsters and the adventures they share with their playmates, growing up together in lovely Prince Edward Island.
Lucy Maud Montgomery’s fascinating accounts of the lives and romances of Anne, Emily, and other well-loved characters have achieved long-lasting popularity the world over. Born in 1874 in Prince Edward Island, Lucy Maud showed an early flair for story-telling. She soon began to have her writing published in papers and magazines, and when she died in Toronto in 1942 she had written more than twenty novels and a large number of short stories. Most of her books are set in Prince Edward Island, which she loved very much and wrote of most beautifully. Anne of Green Gables, her most popular work, has been translated into thirty-six languages, made into a film twice, and has had continuing success as a stage play. Lucy Maud Montgomery’s early home at Cavendish, P.E.I., where she is buried, is a much-visited historic site.
