    The Mapmakers Race is an exciting credible well-paced adventure story. Very clever chapter structure ensures great tension throughout the book. 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.
