Description

With eighty-five all new crosswords, Gwen Sjogren's O Canada Crosswords Book 15 features plenty of puns and challenging wordplay for Canadian solvers from coast to coast. The specifically Canadian-themed crosswords cover writers, landmarks, music and cities, and include puzzles called Shining in Sochi, Leading Canadian Men, National Parks and Playing for Keeps (about hockey stars who never left their teams). This cornucopia of Canadiana covers new ground with themes on music, awards, tennis and exports that require a certain measure of Canuck knowledge.

Gwen Sjogren has garnered the respect of her devoted crossword fans by crafting clever clues and thoughtful themes, wordplay, puzzle design and trivia. In addition to the favourite layouts, Book 15 contains ten puzzles that have no fill-in-the-blank clues. For people who love witty brainteasers, O Canada Crosswords 15 is the ultimate collection.
