The Hackmatack Children's Choice Book Award is an Atlantic Canadian book award voted on by kids. And "Jacob Two-Two on the High Seas" has used every piratey trick to fight its way onto the short list. Which means that kids in the Atlantic provinces will soon be reading the book to discover how Jacob Two-Two came to Canada, what parrots should never say, and that not everyone's treasure is the same.
And if anyone can tell this ignorant Ontarian where the name of the awards comes from, I'd be much obliged.
