When the rain keeps Mariah and Joy confined to the indoors, they create a magic map and go on a fantastic imaginary voyage. Part magic, part adventure, part mystery, and all fun, here's the perfect book for a rainy day. Mariah and Joy are bored, and no, they don't want to clean their room. Young children will appreciate the girls' dilemma and will delight in their imaginative solution involving a crazy map, a monster, a giant, a deep dark forest, a helpful penguin, and an island filled with treasures - all within the four walls of the dining room! A visual tour de force that takes readers from big to small, from up to down, from here to there - and home again.
