Featuring 2,600-plus Canadian clues—that’s over 20 per cent of the total—the nineteenth instalment of this popular series offers a motherlode of national content, puns and fun. As always, author Gwen Sjogren digs deep into the Canadian landscape with geography themes like “Water Marks,” “Destination: Fredericton” and “Go West, Young Scot,” and taps famous Canadians in “Great Ones of the NHL,” “Broadway Lights” and “Money Men.” She mines new Canadiana with markets, national honours and biographies. In a similar vein, this collection features fifty “Canada Cornucopia” entries which provide as much CanCon as Sjogren can pack in.

Generic-themed crosswords including “Cleanup on Aisle Pun,” “Hat Tricks” and “The Gods Must Be Crazy” drill down into wordplay. And to help solvers unearth their superior skills, five crosswords have no fill-in-the-blank clues.

With one hundred large-sized grids, this book is bursting at the seams with hours of brain-teasing amusement.
