We've all heard of amazing grown-ups from Atlantic Canada, like Joseph Howe, Joshua Slocum, or Maud Lewis—but it's about time we learned about our region's amazing kids! This fascinating, full-colour, illustrated book features over 50 amazing and diverse young people from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, and Newfoundland and Labrador, sharing their incredible stories and accomplishments, past and present.

Among these amazing kids are boys and girls who saved lives, set sports records (Marjorie Turner Bailey), invented something (Rachel Brouwer), survived in the wilderness (Robert Kent), overcame injustice, illness, or disability (Danielle Dorris), and enacted many other inspiring deeds of courage and perseverance. Encompassing both historical and contemporary kids, Boileau shows young readers that greatness has no age limit.

Featuring a foreword by The Hon. Myra Freeman, informative sidebars, an index, and 30 original illustrations from artist James Bentley.

John Boileau (CA)
John Boileau was once a kid, but never accomplished anything amazing. Now he is a grandfather to four granddaughters—all of whom are amazing! This is John's fourteenth book, and his first one for young readers. Some of his other books are about the Titanic, the Halifax Explosion, recipients of the Victoria Cross, and a co-authored two-volume set about underage Canadian boys who joined the military during the First and Second World Wars.
