My older daughter (11) was reading a magical illustrated book called The Secret Lives of Princesses and in the middle of the book is an engaging map of a country where princesses live, with intriguing keys and legends and codes and routes and tiny buildings. The map in the book inspired this map of an imaginary land. She worked on this for a few days and is thrilled with her map!
