If you’re counting, 23.5 percent of the clues focus on Canadian references, and you can depend 100 percent on Sjogren’s usual mix of witty wordplay and unique themes. Here’s a taste to wet your whistle:
Animals – Horsing Around & Coming out of Their Shells
Food – I’m Stuffed & Cropping Up
Holidays – Santa Claus Is Coming & Yummy Yuletide
Puns – Hockey Hall of Blame & Piracy?
Royalty – The Queen’s English & Put Up Your Dukes
Sports – Good Sports & Puttering Around
TV – Is There a Doctor in the House? & Channel Surfing
Seven of the forty-six Canada Cornucopia puzzles offer the challenge of no fill-in-the-blank clues. And in the fifty-four themed puzzles, Sjogren makes a meal of new Canadiana, including cartoonists, stamps, money and geographical references from across the country. So if you’re hungry for some brainteasing trivia, take a bite out of O Canada Crosswords Book 21!
