Here at the Bathroom Readers'' Institute, we love all things Canadian, which got us thinking: Why not do an entire book on the greatest country in the world? So we sent our crack research staff to find the answers to some of the quirkiest Canuck questions: * Did a Canadian newspaper mistakenly identify a prominent politician and his wife as serial killers? (Yes.) * Does the Hudson''s Bay Company still pay Queen Elizabeth with beaver pelts? (No.) * Was Harriet Beecher Stowe''s inspiration for Uncle Tom''s Cabin a Canadian? (Yes.) * Does the water on the Saint John River actually flow backward? (Sometimes.) We''ve also uncovered the story behind Greenpeace, the history of Harlequin romance novels, the government''s secret official UFO division, and much more. From Nunavut to Nova Scotia, British Columbia to Northwest Territories, Uncle John''s Bathroom Reader Plunges Into Canada, Eh? is packed with cool Canadian tales. So put away the hockey gear, grab a plate of Kraft dinner, and join us for a wild ride!

About the Book

At the Bathroom Readers' Institute, we love all things Canadian and figure that just because we weren't lucky enough to be born in the land of the northern lights doesn't mean we can't devote an entire "Bathroom Reader" to it. So put away the hockey gear, grab a plate of Kraft dinner, and join us. Whether you're a true Canuck or always wanted to be one, this book is for you! Read about: a waterfall in New Brunswick that flows...backward; the government's secret official UFO division; British Columbia's gold-rush camels; the history of Harlequin romance novels; flying cats, sea serpents, and the cow that braved Niagara Falls; the Yukon man who ate his boots; and much more!
