We all agree that the best stories involve adventures without any adults interfering!
That’s certainly the case in Eirlys Hunter’s new book, The Mapmakers’ Race illustrated by Kirsten Slade!
The story focuses around the Santanders. They’re Sal, aged 14, twins Joe and Francie, aged eleven, Humphrey, who is just walking, and their talking parrot called Carrot.
Together they’re on a mission.
They must plot the route for a railway from Grand Prospect to the coast across a mountainous landscape. Five teams take part, but all the rest are made up of skilled adults!
Can the children beat the adults and survive in the wilderness?
