More About the Author

'Becky Jones and Clare Lewis have cornered the market in curiosity-led guides for children.'
The Londonist.com

Becky Jones and Clare Lewis set up Adventure Walks Books in 2012 to publish a series of World City Maps created for families. Currently published are map guides to London, Paris and Rome. New York is due to be published in Spring 2015. The World City series is illustrated by artist Robert Littleford.

The illustrated colourful maps are structured around 20 easy-to-follow sightseeing walks which navigate you straight to the heart of the city. At a glance, a visitor can identify the best things to see and do and the best ways to get around the city. You will never wander aimlessly again. Each of the 20 walks takes you to a famous tourist attraction, museum or landmark, dipping into the trendiest neighbourhoods and coolest streets. Each map has listings of the best museums and art galleries; best views; best markets and shopping streets and useful tourist information. To keep children happy, tempting treats are dangled along the way: ice creams and sorbets, the best cake shops, parks to let off steam in and where to spin on a carousel or see a puppet show. For children, there is an I-Spy tick box and 20 Thrilling Things to Do.

Adventure Walks for Families

The series of Adventure Walks for Families guide books (London and around) was created out of a desire to inspire city families to get back to the simple things in life and do something together that's good for everyone: getting the family out for a good walk. Children love exploring the great outdoors and, once you get them out there, they enjoy nothing better than a family ramble in the woods. It's the getting them out of the house that's the tricky bit. That's where Adventure Walks for Families fit in: each book contains 25 walks walks with a twist. Family friendly walks (not too long; good place to eat etc) are woven into adventures and given different themes to entice and inspire: children's classic stories; characters from history; stories of myths and legends. Each walk is turned into an adventure. The books dip into nostalgic childhoods to find fun and diverting things to do that so many urban kids seem to have forgotten: climbing trees, getting muddy, building shelters, foraging for food, going on a scavenger hunt, tracking and trail-finding, making paper boats, naming wild flowers and identifying trees, reading stories and singing songs. London Adventure Walks applies the same formula to the city: interweaving the stories and history of London in ways that appeal to children. Illustrated by children, enjoyed by children and tried and tested by children.

Format: Map
City breaks and children don't always tend to be a good match, and Rome with its daunting number of churches and museums can seem a tougher challenge than most. But this easy-to-read and -use, well-researched map/guide makes it all sound not only possible but fun. As one who has struggled around Rome with small children, on endless visits over the years to stay with family there, I can report that it hardly puts a foot wrong, ranging well-beyond the conventional, crowded attractions to include the walks and gelaterias that locals love and are reluctant to advertise to outsiders.

The Adventure Walks team have a real gift for helping you see a city you thought you knew through fresh eyes, covering the essentials while also unveiling offbeat and eccentric elements that are particularly appealing to children. The latest addition to the collection is no exception. Easy to navigate and full of charm. The best way to see Rome is on foot - don't set off without this.

As a Roman I was surprised to find both my favourite pizzeria and ice cream place in the map! It made me see Rome with new eyes, appreciating how fun it is to walk in the eternal city. This is a very well researched map.
