Earlier this week we announced that we have stopped shipment on Thea Stilton and the Blue Scarab Hunt and are revising and reprinting. Today we have further updates to share.
First, the updated map is now available here (opens in .pdf; be sure to print at 100% and check "actual size" so the page will fit your book exactly). The fictional story is about trip by three mice to Egypt; the map is intended to give information to young readers about various locations in Egypt. We corrected the map to accurately reflect the borders of areas surrounding Egypt.
Reprints are beginning immediately and begin shipping in approximately 8 to 10 weeks.

If you downloaded the Storia eBook version of this title, your current book will be automatically updated with a corrected version on your Storia bookshelf in about 4 to 6 weeks. Once the new version is available, all you’ll have to do is sign into your Reading Manager for the update.
Finally, for those who asked, we are pleased to report that the Italian publisher who originally published the title is also making the appropriate corrections for the global market. Like us, they have stopped shipments and will be replacing the books.
We appreciate your feedback and patience and look forward to continuing to serve you. Thank you.
