What Have You Done For Us Lately?

Barbara Berson, the Penguin Canada editor who developed "Our Canadian Girl," the very successful multi-volume series of historical novels for young readers, has left the company. Part of a restructuring, the company says.

"Our Canadian Girl" and the rival series developed at Scholastic Canada, "Dear Canada," were part of the ongoing expansion of kids' historical fiction in Canada in the last ten years. Entertained a lot of kids and kept quite a few good writers in work. Good luck, Barbara Berson.
