Roxie Munro uses eye-popping artwork to lead readers on a drive to the zoo in Mazescapes. Children are invited to navigate through aerial mazes with any of six punch-out cars; each maze connects to the one on the following page. Along the way, kids can play five additional games (e.g., the ""ABC travel game,"" counting bicycles and school buses). Munro's signature style guides drivers through small towns, bustling cities and finally to the zoo, and she encourages them to take an alternate route home. (Aug.)
