Scholastic, Inc

The educational book publishing company, Scholastic, has apologized for printing an English-language children's book, "Thea Stilton and the Blue Scarab Hunt," with a map of the Middle East, sans Israel. Oops. 

It's pretty amazing that something like this got through multiple levels of scrutiny. Other countries surrounding Egypt (where the story takes place) are represented, including Libya, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Jordan.
