Victoria Johnson writes for The Awl about the Hundred Acre Wood, THE WIZARD OF OZ, THE HOBBIT, and other young adult fiction that had The Maps We Wandered Into As Kids.
Above: Jules Feiffer's map from THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH by Norton Juster.
"Feiffer's involvement with Phantom Tollbooth came about incidentally—he and Norton Juster were neighbors in a Brooklyn Heights apartment bulding. Soon they became close friends,roommates and collaborators. As Feiffer remembers it, he would illustrate passages as Juster read them aloud. But the map was a bit of a sticking point. Feiffer hated to draw two things, horses and maps, and The Phantom Tollbooth included both."
