Six comprehensive maps lead children on a tantalizing tour of their favorite magical kingdoms and introduce them to the way maps work.

Once upon a time, fairy-tale kingdoms existed only in the realm of the
imagination. But now, this mesmerizing book of maps brings lands like
Neverland, Oz, and Aladdin's kingdom as close as kids' fingertips. Want to retrace Alice's steps through Wonderland? Start at the rabbit hole and follow the map past the Duchess's house to the croquet ground (just remember not to eat anything along the way!). With maps of six different lands to explore, each offering special points of interest, hidden objects to find, and dangers to avoid, young readers will be spending a lot of time in ONCE UPON A TIME — and learning valuable map-reading skills along the way.

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.
