The Mapmakers’ Race launch

“A scrumptious adventure with danger, pathos, a hilarious mix of villains and a crucial deadline.” Barbara Else

Gecko Press and The Children’s Bookshop warmly invite you to the launch of The Mapmakers’ Race by Eirlys Hunter.

The Mapmakers’ Race is an exciting, credible, well-paced adventure story. One of those now hard-to-find junior fiction novels that have no parents in the action. The kids individually and as a group are so credibly drawn, I loved them all, their strengths and weaknesses. Lots of great celebrations of food! Read it in two sittings.” Marion Unity Books Wellington

Tuesday 3rd July 6pm to 8pm at The Children’s Bookshop (Shop 26, Kilbirnie Plaza, Kilbirnie, Wellington).

RSVP at or on Facebook.
