"A charming concept. . . . Teaches rudiments of map reading and direction following in a friendly way, and it’s 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.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nicole Peterson Davis
Sometimes when you read a story it is difficult to visualize locations of all the events that take place in the story. This map book will help put all the enchanted locations in perspective. The book comes with six different maps of various enchanted lands (Neverland, the Land of Oz, Wonderland, The Giant's Kingdom, Aladdin's Kingdom, and the Enchanted Forest). Each of these maps occupy two pages of the book. The maps are dimensional and come with quite a few details. Each map also contains a box with points of interest in the land (e.g. in Neverland the box shows the Jolly Roger ship belonging to the pirates, Wendy's house, and Peter's hideout). The map also contains a key and a compass. Then, there is a section with directions to take a tour of the island. In order to follow the directions, you must use the key and the compass. These fascinating maps will teach children how to follow directions as they take a tour of each of the kingdoms. Reviewer: Nicole Peterson Davis

Meet 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."
