Lucy Maud and the Cavendish Cat
 
http://images.amazon.com/images/P/08...056505007_.jpgDrawn directly from the journals of L.M. Montgomery herself, Lucy Maud and the Cavendish Cat tells the story of the writing of Anne of Green Gables through the eyes of the author’s constant companion, her beloved gray cat.

Montgomery was an avid journal-writer. She recorded how Daffy sat on her lap as she struggled with the first draft of the book that would become a worldwide classic, and how her cat accompanied her to Ontario and to her new life when she married. Filled with gentle insight, Lucy Maud and the Cavendish Cat is a delight for cat lovers everywhere, and of course, for the millions of readers who love Anne of Green Gables.
Customer Review: Lucy Maud and the Cavendish Cat a Joy for L M M Fans
As a huge L M Montgomery fan, Lucy Maud and the Cavendish Cat was such a joy to pour over. The book is told from the point of view of Maud's beloved cat, Daffy, as he watches the author find literary success, then marry and move from her home in Prince Edward Island. While the subject might not be of great interest to the very young aundience it's geared toward, it will delight anyone who knows and loves Maud's works. The author tells the story very accuarately, using quotes from Maud's Journals, indicating the great ammount of research both author and illustator must have put into creating this book. The accuracy is especially telling in Janet Wilson's beautiful impressionist illustrations. It's fun to spot different LMM treaures in the pictures, like Maud's crazy quilt and the first edition cover of Anne of Green Gables. It's a book well worth buying.
