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."
