The Scary Places Map Book

By Barbara G. Hennessy
Illustrated by Erwin Madrid

Grab a flashlight for an after-dark exploration of seven very scary places. Giggles and goose bumps are in store!

Take a tour of seven spooky places, among them the Wicked Woods, a Ghostly Galleon, and the Western Terror-tories. Along the way, avoid booby traps, search for hidden objects, and learn basic map reading skills! A map key, items to look for, and points of interest, such as Dracula’s Castle and Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory, are included for each eerie region. Tips for touring (never take the Transylvania tour during a full moon) add to the fun. Kids who love to mix the ghoulish with the humorous will pore over the atmospheric pictures time and again, transported to strange, mysterious, very scary places.

  • A fantastically fun and engaging way to learn about maps and map-reading!
  • Need a book for a reluctant (or male?) reader? Look no further!
  • Two spreads are devoted to every location. Each location has a famed and relevant tour guide, a list of things to search for along the route, a compass rose, dangers and perils to avoid, and a key.
