Welcome to Poptropica, an uncharted group of islands whose existence is hidden from the rest of the world.

This is the first book in a new series called Poptropica. In this graphic novel, Mystery Of The Map, three children, Mya, Oliver and Jorge, are dropped off on a mysterious island that seems to be years in the past. They find dodo birds, sabre-toothed tigers and a viking ship. While running from the sabre-tooth, they find a type of fort inhabited by vikings. Meanwhile, the balloon operator is sneaking around looking for a map. How are they going to get off this island? Can they get back to the present? The kids end up being captured by the vikings until they get a chance to escape. The novel ends with the three of them escaping on the viking ship with the map. What is next in this series? I have always loved graphic novels, especially if they get kids to read. This one is perfect for young readers who love a sense of adventure. I especially love the idea of history being introduced in this way. Hopefully this will tweak the interest in specific topics that children will search out other books and sources to read. This is a book that should be in school and public libraries. Teachers would love to have these books in their class libraries as well. I recommend this book to middle grade students. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

In the first book of a new series called Poptropica : Mystery Of The Map, three kids are dropped off a mysterious island and have to find a way to get back home. Oliver, Mya & Jorge are taking a balloon ride when the operator of the balloon brings the kids to a island that is very mysterious and leaves them to fend for themselves. As the kids explore the island and discover that vikings are very much alive and a map that the balloon guide left behind on what he is looking for. The kids end up been held hostage by the vikings until they get a chance to escape and it sets up what is to come in the series. I have always loved comic books and this one is perfect for young kids who love a sense of adventure. I can see this series doing very well and it might make kids more interested in learning about history in the process which is never a bad thing!! Thank You to Jack Chabert for making a comic book that is full of adventure and I can't wait to see what is to come! I received this book from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.
