Grade 3–4—This book offers an interesting look at different types of mazes. Lankford explains why they might have been constructed and mentions the legends or history behind them. Among those included are "Greece: The Minotaur's Maze," "United Kingdom: Turf Mazes," "North America: Maize Mazes," "South Africa: Soekershof Mazes," and "France: Religious Labyrinths." A spread is devoted to each one, with a page of text facing a full-page, softly colored illustration that shows the maze, the landscape in which it is found, and children playing in or around it. This is a beautiful book that will pique readers' curiosity and leave them wanting to know more.—Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA
