Andrew Clements wrote another fifth grade pleaser called The Map Trap. The main character was named for a town on a map, had maps decorating his nursery, and had relatives who sent him all sorts of shirts with maps on them. The poor kid had no choice; he loved maps. Unfortunately, his secret folder of maps falls into the wrong hands. The map-napper blackmails him. As in all Clements’ books, there is a satisfying resolution after some funny twists and turns.
