Age: 7+

Mark lives in a big house with his mother, father, and grandfather. He likes maps and diagrams more than anything in the world: they help him solve any problems that might crop up. For example, Mark has a map for when Grandpa is watching basketball on TV but the boy would rather watch cartoons, as well as maps for finding secret candy stashes or a hidden birthday present. There’s only one missing map and the big problem it entails: one for the dark and menacing attic. How can the boy overcome his fears and conquer the unexplored land?
