Notes

A children's book telling the story of two siblings who navigate their way to a county fair using an Ordnance Survey map, learning how to use it and read the symbols in the process. John and Joanna set out for Dumbleford and on the way the map 'comes to life' as they learn how it relates to the actual countryside, and throws up several adventures on the way.
