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 places 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."
Gr. 1-4. A 1999 book of foldout maps has been reissued in flat-page format. It's a charming concept: beautifully detailed watercolor and ink maps of Neverland, Wonderland, Oz, Aladdin's kingdom, Snow White's forest, and the Giant's realm with Jack are each on a double-page spread. There's a key and a series of instructions so that young readers can follow paths and byways, look for hidden features, and find a possible surprise or two. This also teaches rudiments of map reading and direction following in a friendly way, and it's sufficiently packed with diminutive images so that it can be pored over for a long time.
