Author Biography - Henry Van Dyke
Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) published over thirty books and collections of stories, most notably the groundbreaking coming-of-age novel "Little Women." Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish writer who gained fame with his fairy tales, such as ""The Ugly Duckling"" and ""The Little Mermaid,"" which were cleverly written to disguise the tales' sophisticated moral teachings. Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was the widely popular author of such classic novels as "Oliver Twist," "Nicholas Nickleby," "The Old Curiosity Shop," "A Christmas Carol," and "David Copperfield." Lucy Maud Montgomery was one of the most famous Canadian writers of the twentieth century. She is best known for her books for young adults, particularly "Anne of Green Gables" and its six sequels.
