Anne of Green Gables is a bestselling book by
Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery 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 on an old piece
of paper that she had written at a young age, describing a couple that were
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 main character.
