Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"It's so cold on the prairies that everybody wears balaclavas when they go into a convenience store." "It's so cold on the prairies that politicians keep their hands in their own pockets." If you've ever had your tongue stuck to a chainlink fence this book is for you. If your in-laws have ever come to visit while weather watch systems warn of record-breaking snowfalls-this book is definitely for you. If you're ever freezing to death in a stalled vehicle during a prairie whiteout this book may save your life: it's one of the few books freedom-to-read advocates actually recommend burning in case of emergency. Each page is illustrated with a weather saying, so br-r-r-race yourself for a wickedly wry and witty look at the season we love to hate. <BR> "The perfect stocking stuffer." "-Canadian Book Review Annual"
