SHOCKER! World's Largest Children's Book Publisher LEAVES ISRAEL OFF THE MAP!

 A detail from a map of the Middle East that appears in the book 'Thea Stilton and the Blue Scarab Hunt,' published by Scholastic.

Scholastic, the world’s largest publisher of children’s books, has eliminated the Jewish state in a book.

Thea Stilton and the Blue Scarab Hunt,” is part of the popular Geronimo Stilton children’s series. The book is translated from Italian and published by Scholastic in 2012. It tells the story of a group of investigative journalists involved in a treasure hunt in Egypt.

The story begins by showing a map of modern Egypt and its neighboring countries. Sudan, Libya and Saudi Arabia appear on the map. However, the state of Israel is completely covered by Jordan and painted red.

Founded in Pennsylvania in 1920, Scholastic has grown to become the world’s largest publisher and distributor of children’s books.


The following post was left on PPSIMMONS Facebook  - after reading THIS article:

Ty Bassham I just called Scholastic and spoke with them about this map and gave my concerns. I was told they realize the mistake and are now recalling all books and republishing this edition with a new map that does include Israel. The map they used was from the original version made in Italy and wasn't properly vetted prior to printing. I believe him..
