Interestingly, the map they are examining is the one from the story, and is indeed the version published in the dutch paperback edition of the book published by Het Spectrum in 1963.

The map is not, however, included in this hardback edition at all !

He has illustrated many Dutch children's books, and also the first Puffin edition of Ann Pilling's book Henry's Leg in 1989.
