Preview: Hear it

This maptastic middle grade story from Andrew Clements gives the phrase uncharted territory a whole new meaning!Alton Barnes loves maps. Hes loved them ever since he was little, and not just for the geography. Because maps contain more information than just locations, and thats why he likes to draw them as well as read them. Regular point A to point B ones, sure, but also maps that explain a whole lot morelike what he really thinks about his friends. And teachers. Even the principal. So when Altons maps are stolen from his locker, theres serious trouble on the horizonand hell need some serious cartographic skills to escape it. From a genius of gentle, highconcept tales set in suburban middle schools (The New York Times), this standalone story is off the charts.
