O Canada

Up Ontario way a Canadian mom of six is launching a series of biographies devoted to Canadian prime ministers. The Ottawa Sun shines a favorable light on the endeavor.

The thirtysomething [Jacqueline] Brown is the brains (and the publisher) behind a smart and delightful new series of children's books about our prime ministers. The "Warts and All" series has just begun with the publication of Sir John A Macdonald: The Rascal Who Built Canada, a book that has all the historical details on the dude on the $10 bill as well as the sort of obscure fun facts -- did you know John A. was the only prime minister who ever threw up in the House of Commons? -- that keep kids reading.
