Book Synopsis



A New York Times bestseller based on a concept by Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney, Mystery of the Map is the first book in Poptropica, a graphic novel adventure series by Jack Chabert and Kory Merritt.

Oliver, Mya, and Jorge take a ride in a hot-air balloon, only to crash-land on an unknown island filled with extinct animals and a horde of angry Vikings. Welcome to Poptropica, an uncharted group of islands whose existence is hidden from the rest of the world.

As the three friends embark on a perilous search for a way home, they quickly discover the shocking reason they were brought there--something that threatens the very existence of Poptropica and their ability to ever make it off the island!

"Mystery, action, and big laughs . . . this book's got it all." --Jeff Kinney

"Bright, animated colors and zippy cartoonlike action make for an easily accessible first offering that provides just enough exposition to hook young readers and keep them seeking out subsequent adventures. A peppily paced adventure yarn sure to delight fans of the franchise, both old and new." --Kirkus Reviews

"Based on the online role-playing game developed by the ever-popular Jeff Kinney, this new adventurecomic series gets off to a flying start... The lively art mirrors that on the website, featuring bold, colorful panels and characters with giant heads and expressive eyes. Fans of the online game will delight in reading a story about one of Poptropica's many islands, and newcomers will have no trouble falling into this adventure."--Booklist

--Kirkus

"Fans of the game will recognize the pop-eyed humans, the vibrant islands, and the quest-focused storylines, but even readers who have never heard Poptropica will get the fun right away... Both game buffs and newbies will likely find this the perfect amount of exposition and action, and they'll cheerfully await the next big adventure for this clever, unruly trio who face nose-picking Vikings and imminent peril with equal looks of dismay."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
