O Canada Crosswords
O Canada Crosswords by Dave Macleod
Book DescriptionA puzzle a day keeps the boredom away! And these are no ordinary puzzles. These 75 cleverly themed crosswords include themes like "Prefix-ation," "Prime Mini$ter$" and "Let it Snow.' Many of the clues use tricky wordplay and are all about Canada: Child of Chibougamau? (enfant). Saturday night live group? (NHL). With Canadian spellings, Canadian perspectives and Canadian topics, the fact that you wear a toque to go to Timmy's and pay GST on pretty much everything makes you uniquely qualified to solve these puzzles. Drawing on the trademarks of Canadian identity, this collection is for every Canadian. Sharpen your pencils and get ready for a good time!

Author Biography - Dave Macleod
Born of Canadian parents in Princeton, New Jersey, Dave Macleod moved to Canada in 1975 to study forestry, and in his spare time he learned to construct crosswords. His puzzles have since appeared in Saturday Night Magazine, the Toronto Sun, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and syndicated to hundreds of websites and publications across the continent. Macleod lives in Nelson, British Columbia. Barbara Olson's love of words has led her to earn a degree in French translation, to write a newspaper column on the joys and pitfalls of the English language, and most recently, to construct crossword puzzles. Her puzzles have appeared in Saturday Night Magazine, The Toronto Sun, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and have been syndicated to hundreds of websites and publications across the continent. Barbara lives in Nelson, British Columbia.
