The multi-award-winning Wow Canada! is an original, witty, and fabulously informative cross-country excursion, done scrapbook style. This 10th anniversary edition is sure to win over new audiences, who will treasure this celebratory look at all things Canadian. Join 12-year-old Guy, his younger sister Rachel, and their parents as they dip their toes in the Pacific Ocean, hop in their car, and set off to see the country from west to east. The family's surprise-filled travels take them from one end of the country to the other, even up to Nunavut. Honest and downright hilarious, Guy is the perfect narrator for this national odyssey; his wry backseat observations are a hit with young readers. Wow Canada! features fun and funny bits of Canadian trivia; postcards and e-mails from Guy and Rachel to their friends back home; stamps, souvenirs, photos, and drawings; panoramic map art for each province and territory; humorous sidebars, such as "Food I Was Introduced to for My Own Good," "Guy's Family Car Trip Survival Tips," "According to Mom;" Bucko Beaver cartoon strips; and more! This rollicking, informative, and absorbing tour of Canada's many splendors is a refreshing celebration of the nation.
