A 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!
