Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A charming concept. . . . Teaches rudiments of map reading and direction following in a friendly way, and its packed with diminutive images." — BOOKLIST

Imagine that fairy tales are real and can be explored in detail with the help of maps. Imagine navigating the mysteries of Aladdin's kingdom, the dangers of the Giant's kingdom at the top of Jack's beanstalk, and the whimsy of Alice's Wonderland. Imagine a trip through the unique geographical features of Peter Pan's Neverland, Dorothy's Land of Oz, and Snow White's Enchanted Forest. You'll have expert guides and clear, simple directions. On each map, a compass, quadrants with letters and numbers, and a key with local routes will help you find your way. This beautiful and unique book features six fold-out maps and a fairy-tale pop-up castle finale.

About the Author

B. G. Hennessy came up with the idea for THE ONCE UPON A TIME MAP BOOK when her sons were bringing home school assignments involving map reading. "I've always liked the maps with the little pictures," she says. "So I decided to create a pictorial map book, a kind of travel guide to the places my own kids would really want to visit."

Peter Joyce says, "As a child I was fascinated by little maps in stories that showed where everything happened and how it related. I enjoyed drawing my way around these famous fairy tales. They are very special—such different imaginative worlds."
