“Map of the Future" is an amazing concertina-shaped book. You can browse the book page by page, or spread it out on the floor to follow the adventures of the main characters.

This is the craziest story you’ve ever heard!

During a school experiment, Gabby and Bertie accidentally open a time travel portal. The portal sucks everything in, all of class 3A and various objects from the classroom. On the map, you not only have to find all of the pupils, but also parts of a spaceship, a crusty old croissant and a dust brush… and a few more things (though no one is going to miss 3A’s class register!)

The kids move from east to west, and from north to south. You will visit the Eiffel Tower, the Taj Mahal and the Pantheon with them… You will see cities built from origami, a Jurassic park in Africa, giant robots playing golf, the mythical Atlantis, and even an ice-cream factory that makes northern-lights-flavoured ice cream! The book is full of aliens, tourists, and also locations and landscapes whose meanings and functions you have to come up with for yourselves!

Find all the members of the school party so that they can get safely back to their classroom. Explore, discover, have fun!
