Katie Maurice was the imaginary friend invented by Anne Shirley. She took up residency in Anne's reflection whenever she saw it in a mirror, window, or water.
During Anne Shirley's living with the Thomas family, Mrs. Thomas had a bookcase in her sitting room with glass doors. One of them was broken as Mr. Thomas had smashed it one night when he was intoxicated. But the other one was whole and Anne used to imagine that her reflection in the glass door was a living girl. She named her Katie Maurice and often talked to her when she felt alone and sad.
