Trivia Book 2, you'll discover the Canadian who was responsible for

two-dollar bill, how the robbery phrase "hands up" was connected to Canada, and
whether a goalie can take a face-off in a hockey game. In the much-anticipated
sequel to their best-seller, The Great Canadian Trivia Book, award-winning
writers Mark Kearney and Randy Ray dig even deeper into Canada's curious
characters, storied past, and cultural idiosyncracies.

The Great Canadian Trivia Book
| Canada has given the world the real
Winnie the Pooh, the phrase "Beatlemania", and the man who invented the Academy
Awards. If it weren't for Canada, we might not have the pie-in-the-face gag,
basketball, time zones, or the dotted white line on the middle of highways. And
anyone who still thinks Canada is dull obviously doesn't know about the
Canadian who was the longest serving prisoner on Alcatraz, or the night that
members of Parliament threw books and toy balloons at each other during a wild
debate in the House of Commons. The original Great Canadian Trivia Book
explores the noteworthy and the notorious, the factual and the phenomenal, the
obscure and outlandish sides of the Great White North.
Written by Mark Kearney and Randy Ray. Published by Hounslow Press, 1996.
