Author(s): L. M. Montgomery
Five years after coming to Green Gables, Anne is 'half past sixteen' and about to start teaching at her old school, with high hopes of inspiring youthful hearts and minds with ideals and ambitions. But some of her pupils have quite other ideas. Meanwhile, the young orphan Davy and the Avonlea Improvement Society bring their own headaches for a headstrong girl trying to grow up.
L. M. Montgomery was born in 1874 on Prince Edward Island, Canada, where she spent her childhood living with her grandparents in an old farmhouse. A prolific writer, she published many short stories, poems and novels, many of which were inspired by the years she spent on the beautiful Prince Edward Island. Anne of Green Gables and its sequels have always been amongst the most popular of children's classics. Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942 and was buried on her beloved island.
