By Joanne Stanbridge   Illustrated by Bill Dickson   

Scholastic Canada Ltd | ISBN 9780439957298 Paperback

An upbeat approach to who's who in Canadian history... even when they're dead. In the hilarious sequel to the first book in the series, fifteen (yes, dead) Canadians are featured-explorers, inventors, politicians, and more. Readers will get a fresh and funny take on Canada's own spy, William Stephenson; mapmaker David Thompson; artist Emily Carr; and twelve other Canadians. The perfect book for all the readers who loved Famous Dead Canadians (a Silver Birch Honour Book), and First Folks and Vile Voyageurs.

Praise for Who Runs This Country Anyway?:

"Stanbridge...provides accurate, thorough, yet concise explanations....If you're looking for a book that covers everything kids need to know about Canadian government for social studies or for general interest, this is the best book I've seen on this topic." —St. John's Telegram
