Description

O Canada Crosswords just keeps on giving to thousands of solvers who like their crosswords Canadian. Nightwood Editions is proud to celebrate O Canada Crosswords’s milestone twentieth anniversary with Gwen Sjogren’s ninth book in the series, which features one hundred larger-sized grids and over 2,600 Canadian clues.

With themes that touch on art, geography, Olympics and hockey—plus some music and magic mixed in for good measure—this instalment brings a cornucopia of CanCon to the table. Thirty-three Canadian-themed puzzles include “Breakout Hits,” “Fit as a Fiddler,” “Pictures Perfect,” “East Coast Scenic” and “For Lac of a Better Word.”

Other themed entries include “Eight Kates,” “Magical Mysteries Tour,” “From A to Sea” and “Systems Scramble.” Seven puzzles offer the challenge of no fill-in-the-blank clues. Additionally, this collection has three circle-in-the-square puzzles and a handful of rebus-related grids. So if you’re hungry for national content, pull up a chair and dig into this buffet of crossword fun, puns... and all the Canadiana you can eat!
