On a snowy evening, Camilla the warthog likes nothing better than to stay indoors and pore over her beloved collection of maps. Street maps, trail maps, star charts — she’s got a little of everything, but her favorite is an old map of the forest where she lives. Next morning, after the big storm, Camilla and her friend Parsley the hedgehog find that deep snow has altered the forest, covering up all traces of the paths and landmarks they know well. How can they find the path to the creek? By striking out across this uncharted territory and making their own map! This charming tale introduces kids to the fabulous pastime of drawing their own maps of places real or imagined.
