L.M. Montgomery (Little People Big Dreams) by Isabel Sanchez Vegara & Anuska Allepuz
In the Little People Big Dreams series, discover the lives of outstanding people from designers and artists to scientists. All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream. This book follows the incredible life of Lucy Maud Montgomery, the famous Canadian author of Anne of Green Gables. Born in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island, Little Lucy lost her mother when she was very young. Left in the care of less-than-encouraging grandparents, she found comfort in reading, writing and her imagination. When Lucy grew up, she wrote about the childhood she wished she had, creating one of the best-loved characters of all time: Anne of Green Gables. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the writer's life. This empowering series celebrates the important life stories of wonderful women of the world. These books make the lives of these role models accessible for children, providing a powerful message to inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world!
