John A., boy detective

Fireside Publishing offers another in its series of young readers' mystery novels featuring ... Canada's prime ministers as young boys.

Roderick Benns's The Legend of Lake on the Mountain: An Early Adventure of John A. Macdonald features an introduction by Brian Mulroney (presumably destined to star in his own volume) and praise from Richard Gwyn, Jack Granatstein, and Patricia Phenix.  More info here.
 "Well, young man, maybe this Mackenzie will lead some kind of revolution, like they had in the United States.  What do you think of that?"
"Meaning no disrespect, sir, but I think there must be other ways to figure out how to run our affairs."
