Map of Children's Books

The map below is constructed in Google Maps. Each placemark shows a location mentioned in a children’s book. The initial criteria is to select the main location or starting location for a book. We have differentiated on the key between picture books, short novels (less than 150 pages), novels and graphic novels.The intention is that over forthcoming weeks, months and years anyone can add their own placemarks for books which have inspired them at some point. Obviously it is important that people who add books leave a short recommendation with a link to a description of the book. For those in England here is a beautiful map from Enjoy England!
Please take a look at the map and add any books which you think might be relevant. Thanks!
