Man has been creating mazes for at least 4,000 years. Early mazes were used for rituals and processions - and were not puzzles meant to be solved as they often are today. Educators and librarians use mazes in activities that encourage creative problem-solving, build math skills and improve concentration - and simply because they are fun.

In this online seminar, award-winning author/illustrator Roxie Munro will discuss the techniques she developed for her well-known books which include Mazescapes; Amazement Park; Wild West Trail Ride Maze; The Inside-Outside Book of New York City, a New York Times Best Illustrated award-winner; and Mazeways: A to Z to be published in August 2007. She will explore the history of mazes and show how mazes occur in real life. She will also talk about how to create mazes and games that can be adapted for children's and YA library programming.

Ms. Munro is the acclaimed author/illustrator of 27 books for children. She also creates oils, watercolors, prints, and drawings, primarily cityscapes, which are exhibited widely in the US in galleries and museums. Fourteen of her paintings have appeared as covers of The New Yorker magazine.
