Canadian Fiction Studies are an answer to every librarian's, student's, and teacher's wishes. Each book, about 80 pages in length, contains clear, readable information on a major Canadian novel. These studies are carefully designed readings of the novels; they are not substitutes for reading them. Each book is attractively produced and follows the same format, so students will know exactly what to expect: a chronology of the author's life, the importance of the book, critical reception, reading of the text, selected list of works cited.

Reviewers say:

"[Studies of Montgomery’s work such as] Kindling Spirit: L. M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables, address key issues: links between Anne's and Montgomery's social and cultural milieus; how decisions by and for her fictional characters are affected by a sense of community expectations; and the paradoxes, ironies, and subversive tactics Montgomery employs in mapping the construction of selfhood in her life-writing and fiction."

Barbara Carman Garner, “Roads to Yesterday: New Readings of L. M. Montgomery,” Children's Literature Association Quarterly 24, 1, 1999
