Overview

So, you want to be Canadian? Who doesn't these days? Canucks are enjoying a major renaissance in attention, from their enlightened social policies to their wild and wooly pop culture. This playful, trivia-packed book is a long-overdue celebration of all things Canadian, from the mysteries of "eh?" to the difference between an Ogo Pogo and a Windingo to how to prepare moose stroganoff (mmm!). Featuring a dreamy list of Canadian hotties, a toe-tapping roundup of Canadian smash hit songs, a handy CanadianAmerican translator, and pointers on how to eat, dress, and apologize like a Canadian if you weren't lucky enough to be born a Canuck, So, You Want to Be Canadian demonstrates once and for all why Canada is so cool (formerly just cold).

I already have this in hard copy. It's hysterical! Very tongue-in-cheek, poking fun at a bunch of Canadian stereotypes. Anonymous reviewer needs to relax and open their mind a little. It's a comedic book.

Great little book well worth a buck or loonie. Humourously informative about Americas northern neighbor.

Very short, but enjoyed it. Some really interesting information about Canada.

We met a couple of crazy canadians (especially him!) on vacation this past year and had to get the book. We didn't know how the canadian got to be like he is but the book gives us a much better understanding (and appreciation!)! Would recommend to anyone who is curious about our northern neighbors or likes hockey.

I enjoyed reading this book about our neighbors to the North. The information covered was very basic (e.g., names of the provinces, what is poutine) but it was covered in a very entertaining way. I think I read the whole book in an hour? Or not much more than that.
