"I love books. I hope when I grow up to be able to have lots of them." Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote in her journal when she was just fourteen. This journal entry, made in 1889, is significant to readers today who know that when she grew up she not only owned and read many books, but also became the world-famous author L. M. Montgomery. Maud, as she liked to be called by family and friends, wrote twenty-four books between 1908 and 1939. Her first was Anne of Green Gables, and her other works include seven more Anne books, the Avonlea stories, the Emily trilogy, two novels for adults, an autobiography, and the novel The Story Girl.
Lucy Maud Montgomery was always writing and reading and was quite a story girl herself, creating more than five hundred short stories. She also wrote many poems. One edition of her poetry was published during her lifetime and today all her poems have been collected in a single volume.
Grade 4-7 ``Anne''-philes as well as those having only a nodding acquaintance with the classic Canadian series will be charmed by this collection of 25 tantalizing recipes. The author, who is a home economist and a granddaughter of Anne's creator, L. M. Montgomery, has selected recipes inspired by passages from the Anne books. The result is a delightful match of captivating quotations to appropriate delicacies. Anne's lament, ``I wish people could live on pudding. Why can't they, Marilla? I want to know,'' accompanies a butterscotch pudding recipe which could surely prove life-sustaining. Strategic cooking tips and definitions of essential culinary terms precede the simple but appealing recipes, all of which include lists of utensils needed. Novice cooks (and their parents) will welcome MacDonald's step-by-step procedures and selection of inexpensive ingredients. The emphasis is on sweets, with two-thirds of the recipes being for desserts. Delicate illustrations, some in full color, capture the essence of the series. Librarians who purchase this book can anticipate a rush on their Montgomery collections. Merilyn Burrington, Vergennes Union High School, Vt.
