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.
This was a fun find! The kids truly enjoyed this book. To be honest, so did I!
There are seven different places that you “tour”. Each place has a picture of the place and a description. It even has a list of dangers to avoid while touring that location. It’s almost like it’s a travel guide for fictional creepy locations.
Then there is a map. The map is extremely interactive. On the side of the map, they give you directions of how to travel through the map. An example of this would be on the Transylvania map, the first direction says “Begin at the train station in Gremlintown (G6). The G6 refers to the map square just like on a real life map. This helps the kids to learn how to locate things on a map.
Plus each map has 1 special hidden object that they have to locate while traveling around.
