The mapmakers’ race, Eirlys Hunter
This book is about five children who have entered a competition to make a map that goes through the mountains. For four of the children, this is their last chance as their father has disappeared and they have no money. They only have 28 days to do this and not only that, but they discover that they are racing adult teams. Will they do it? This is a very exciting book that has adventure and suspense. I really enjoyed it.
