The librarian who discovered them is not certain ... and what are the strange messages in a cryptic code that Walters records in his ship's log? Inside this wonderous atlas are trolls and dragons, minotaurs and krackens, goblins and giants ... and there is a puzzle to solve. Stuart Hill's spectacular illustrations evoke the beauty of a medieval map, but with a contemporary twist.
