Frankie MacDonald is a YouTube celebrity living in Sydney, Nova Scotia. He's studied meteorology from an early age and shares his weather reports with more than 150,000 subscribers living all over the world. In his free time, he enjoys watching movies, going to hockey games, and walking along the Sydney waterfront.

Sal Sawler is the award-winning author of four books including this one. They worked with YouTube star Frankie MacDonald to write Be Prepared: The Frankie MacDonald Guide to Life, the Weather, and Everything, which won a Moonbeam Children's Award, and was shortlisted for Yellow Cedar and Hackmatack Awards. Their second book, 100 Things You Don't Know About Atlantic Canada (For Kids), was also shortlisted for a Hackmatack Award. If they aren't busy writing, they're probably marketing or editing a graphic novel for Conundrum Press, facilitating a workshop, or daydreaming about ocean waterslides. They live and work in Kjipuktuk/Halifax.

Quick Quotes

"Sawler's book can be picked up and dived into at any point making it suitable for reluctant readers (especially those addicted to world record and trivia style books) and those requiring high interest paired with low vocabulary. The only fault to be found is the "for kids" designation as this book will surely garner many adult fans as well." —Canadian Review of Materials

"This book will be enjoyed by all Atlantic Canadians who have an interest in the history and places of the region. It would be a great book to take on a holiday through the provinces of Atlantic Canada. It would also be a great book to share with elementary students who are studying Canadian social studies and would be a jumping off point for further research about some of the topics covered in the book." —Resource Links (Pouch Cove, NF)

"This book should be well received by sports fans in Nova Scotia as well as others throughout the country who have an interest in individual athletes. The book is well done and will find a place in school and public libraries as well as in the home libraries of many sports fans." Resource Links (Pouch Cove, NF)
