Introduction

Anne of Green Gables is a book by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery and published in 1908. It was written as fiction for readers of all ages, but in recent decades has been considered a children's book.

Montgomery found her inspiration for the book in a newspaper article describing a couple that was mistakenly sent an orphan girl instead of a boy, yet decided to keep her. Montgomery also drew upon her own childhood experiences in rural Prince Edward Island. Montgomery used a photograph of Evelyn Nesbit, clipped from an American magazine and pasted on the wall above her writing desk, as the model for Anne Shirley, the book's protagonist.
