Staunton, Ted, Pilsworth, Graham


This irreverent and light-hearted illustrated book focuses on a topic no child in school can avoid: Confederation. Although in social studies Confederation may put kids to sleep, Ted Staunton thinks that's because so much of story is left out of the text books. Here he reveals how the fathers of Confederation engineered their plan and how they used their newspapers to convince the people. In Charlottetown, every day was party day as the well-funded Upper Canadians worked on the reluctant Maritimers at social events. In the lead-up to key elections, Confederation's friends were quite happy to use their funds to bribe opponents into silence. Classroom heroes look a lot less heroic - and yet far more interesting - in Ted Stauton's portrayal.Staunton, Ted is the author of 'The Dreadful Truth: Confederation (Dreadful Truth Series)', published 2004 under ISBN 9780887806308 and ISBN 0887806309.
