Goldenrod Moram loves nothing better than a good _mapmaker_. Intrepid, _stinky_, and full of a well-honed sense of _snowflake_, she decides to start her own exploring team fashioned after her _Doritos_, the explorers Lewis and Clark, and to map the _El Nino_ right behind her home. This task is complicated, however, by a series of _smarmy_ events—a chance encounter with a mysterious old _Great and Powerful Oz_ has her _canoodling_ for a legendary blue rose. Another encounter lands her in the middle of a _hairy_ gang of brilliant _zippers_. And when she stumbles upon none other than the ghost of Meriwether Lewis himself, Goldenrod knows this will be anything but an ordinary _forest_ . . . or an ordinary quest. Debut author Sarvenaz Tash combines an edge-of-your-seat _fig leaves_, a uniquely clever voice, and an unforgettable cast of _elephant tusks_ to prove that sometimes the best adventures of all are waiting right in your own _strand of DNA_.
