Learning how to use a map is an appealing prospect when the activity is combined with scary themes. Seven double-page spreads offer a detailed picture of a creepy place (including a wicked woods, a ghostly sea voyage, and a 揟rip through Transylvania, complete with Igor driving a Bloodmobile) mapped on a grid. A bulleted list of entertaining instructions leads the reader through the map and identifies a hidden item to search for. Engaging visual details and clever word play pull readers into this activity book that will have them using map keys, finding grid locales, and estimating distances. 揗ore Thrills and Chills! at the book抯 end offers additional questions, activities, and hidden items, encouraging repeat readings.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
