It's edgy. It's funny. And it's destined to become the coolest book about Canada for kids -- a young person's "This Hour Has 22 Minutes"-meets history- book. Featuring Canada's revered "paddlers, peddlers and meddlers," First Folks and Vile Voyageurs will give readers the scoop behind Canadian place names (did you know Canada was this close to being called Transatlantic?), inventions (the canoe was ours!), and discoveries (popcorn, anyone?), plus "crabby chronologies," and much, much more. From the Ice Age to Terre Neuve, from Cabot to Cartier, there's so much horrible history here, it could only be true, eh? Filled with hilarious cartoons, this lampoon of Canadian history will keep kids laughing as they learn all about the conquests, bumbles, and discoveries that made Canada the country it is today.

History, you see, is much more than "Once there were people and they did stuff." History is "Once there were brave, foolish, heroic, cowardly, adventurous, cruel, greedy, romantic, determined, nutty, and magnificent people- and they did unbelievable, terrible, splendid, and awesome stuff."
