Whatever Happened To...?
The latest book by Canadaâ€™s Trivia Guys is an entertaining where-are-they-now look at the fate of some 100 celebrities, newsmakers, and significant artifacts from this countryâ€™s past. Lake Ontario swimmer Marilyn Bell, CFL legend Russ Jackson, Canadaâ€™s first automobile, and Roger Woodward, a boy who survived the waters of Niagara Falls more than 40 years ago, are among those tracked down. Long after making headlines or burrowing their way into our collective consciousness, these Canadian icons have travelled different roads or in some cases kept more quietly to the path that gained them attention in the first place.
Kearney and Ray spice up their stories with dozens of fascinating facts. With website links to further information, this book is a great resource to learn more about Canadaâ€™s heritage.
"This is a great book to keep in the car -- the trivia and quizzes should keep older kids amused during long cross-country car rides."
