The book features modern day kids who are drawn into Canadian history through magic, and get to see John A. MacDonald in his prime. A very fun way to bring history to life. The writing is not that deep, nor are the characters that engaging. But the book does fulfill its purpose of getting kids to care more about history. Great job!
