About the book:
Description: On the eve of World War I, the machine-loving Austro-Hungarians and Germans have their big steam-powered Clankers. Inspired by Darwin, the British have fabricated animals into warships. Their mothership is called "Leviathan," and she is a whale-dirigible. The first book in a brand-new trilogy by the author of the "New York Times"-bestselling Uglies series.

This is on my shelves and I hope to get to it soon. I've heard such great things about it and the drawings inside are amazing.

Hi Zia. I popped in this morning ot look at your sidebar map - very cool! I am curious how you were able to get yours to not be zoomed in.

I think when you link to mine it opens way zoomed in and you have to move the slider to see the pegs. I will look at mine again.... maybe it is fine.

Yours opens nicely right to the pegs and looks awesome! :D

Zia said...

Sheila - Thank you!

Uh is it bad when I tell you, I have no clue haha. Maybe you saved it, while it was zoomed in? When I first started the map, my first 3 or so pegs disappeared and so I redid them. Apparently it was a glitch and I ended up with duplicates heh. It's all pretty much hit and miss with me so far.
