Author: Michael de Adder

You Might Be From Nova Scotia If is a delightful illustrated romp through the land of the Bluenose. From one of the best cartoonists in the country, de Adder delivers his unique take on his home province, tickling the funny bone on every page. As de Adder proves, this is a province that is proud of who it is and likes nothing better than a good laugh.


"The brilliant De Adder nails us again... He understands our quirks, our boasts, our foibles, our hopes, our insecurities. He employs his always pointed — and fully loaded — pen to make us laugh at ourselves, and to allow others to laugh with us. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, the boy is some good!"

— Stephen Kimber, Professor of Journalism, University of King's College, and author of What Lies Across the Water: The Real Story of the Cuban Five.


"Michael de Adder is a very funny guy — and a very astute one. Not only are his cartoons hilarious; each of the ones in this book picks out a foible that every Nova Scotian will recognize and enjoy."

—Silver Donald Cameron, Nova Scotian author of 17 books, and currently the Host and Executive Producer of the innovative environmental website
