I was enchanted and intrigued by this story. How could the boy's father buy something so impractical as a map, when the family was starving? Yet the map helped the young boy see that there were places in the world beyond his home. It allowed him to dream and imagine what they were like.

The illustrations in this picture book are colorful, captivating, and full of hope.

I especially enjoyed the end notes where they author shared a bit of his real-life story, and some of his early drawings
