A to Z Challenge: O is for...O

Hello! *waves* Thanks for joining me today for my Blogging From A to Z Challenge post. Not sure what the challenge is about? Click here for the deets, or here for my theme reveal. And of course, you're welcome to read my past posts—starting with the letter "A" here.

Also, if you haven't read my "C is for canola" post, you should—you could WIN a set of all 15 of the Superman Duffy graphic novels, signed by the author. And that's no myth—for real!

O is for "O"

You probably know that hockey and lacrosse are Canada's national winter and summer sports, but did you know that the basketball was created by a Canadian? Or that insulin—the medicine used to help people with diabetes—was invented by a Canadian scientist? How about Superman? Did you know the artist who came up with that character is from Canada?

If any of these facts surprise you, you're going to be blown away by what you learn in the Superman Duffy graphic novel, "O." The 16th—and last—book in the series was written to commemorate Canada's 150th birthday last year, and in it, cartoon me is a junior reporter on the hunt for cool trivia about our nation. And wow, do *I* ever come up with some amazing statistics.

Canadians are responsible for some amazing inventions—from canola crops, to Jet Engine Funny Cars that run on canola biodiesel—and everything in-between. When you finish this book, you'll be sure to hum "O Canada" all day long.

Gotta jet! By now you know the drill—see you tomorrow for "P" and be sure to order your copy of "O' from the Alberta Canola Producers Commission website, or of course, flip through my past posts to see how you can WIN the full set of 16 books.
