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.

About the Author:

B. G. Hennessy is the author of The Once Upon a Time Map Book, illustrated by Peter Joyce, and several other picture books, including My Book of Thanks and Because of You: A Book of Kindness, both illustrated by Hiroe Nakata. B. G. Hennessy lives in Arizona.

Erwin Madrid contributed production illustrations for the animated feature film Shrek 2 while still in college. He went on to work as a visual development artist for the Shrek franchise and the Madagascar sequel, and has also created conceptual art for video games. He lives in the San Francisco Bay area.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3-A follow-up to The Once Upon a Time Map Book (Candlewick, 2004), Hennessy's activity book forgoes narrative for a lackluster collection of "terrifying tours" of mythical, historical, and folk-tale-based lands full of ostensibly frightening objects and creatures. A brief introduction to such sites as "A Trip Through Translvania" or "The Ghostly Galleon Cruise of the Seven Seas" precedes each digitally created map, with allusions to the literary references that inform each landscape-calling out, but not explaining, common items associated with each mythology. A lengthy list of directions instructs readers to follow the path through the terrain, but map coordinates and site labels marking each destination clutter the page and render careful measurement on the map pointless; additionally, following the meandering paths dictated in the tepid text fails to yield any particularly rewarding destination for readers. While some students may benefit from practice using a map, a backward compass rose on one sole spread and a misleading introduction on another page will frustrate users who may be just mastering these skills. The narrative-less introductions and uninspired digital illustrations provide glimpses at the intriguing backstories for each theoretically creepy landscape, but ultimately the book offers scant thrills and absolutely no scares.-Robbin E.
