"Penny likes to hide her toys and other stuff in the yard . . . . Maybe I'll make a map of Penny's hideouts."

Lisa's class is learning how to make maps. The teacher says they can make maps of anyplace, so Lisa starts with her bedroom. She includes all the things that people will need to read the map, such as a scale and a key to the symbols she has used. Her dog, Penny, helps with the map. This gives Lisa an idea. Why not map Penny's world? Making maps is so much fun that Lisa and Penny decide to visit some of the exotic places that they've drawn-but they won't forget to take a map along!

This engaging sequel to the best-selling Measuring Penny will delight teachers and students alike.
