Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 2-4. At Level 4 in the Dorling Kindersley Readers series, this account is for able readers. It may also be useful for older ESL students and in adult literacy classes. Several short chapters discuss the legend of the lost city of Atlantis and the arguments about whether this ancient civilization really existed. When Plato described the sumptuous city and its catastrophic end, did he mean the story as a fable? The second part of the book is about the search for Atlantis in sites all over the world, a search that continues to this day. The design is like a small magazine, with lots of boxed insets and captioned color pictures around the spacious type. There's also a detailed glossary. Hazel Rochman

A bought this book for my 8 year-old and ended up reading it myself. I've done a fair amount of my own reading on Atlantis and to my surprise I found this to be a really well written overview of many famous Atlantis ideas. The book begins with a nice retelling of Plato's original story. There are some really stunning illustrations in the book - from the original artwork showing the capital city of Atlantis as it might have been, to many photographs of undersea ruins etc. The author has done a great job, and produced a book that I and my son enjoyed in equal measure!

I was always more interested in the "real" Atlantis that the ones that popped up in fiction ever since I read a "Reader's Digest" article that explained how archeologists were looking at the volcanic island of Thera in the Aegean sea as the legendary island. The most interesting part of the article talked about how the volcanic explosions that destroyed Thera may well have been the cause of the plagues of Egypt, all of which are apparently associated with volcanic eruptions. Since I am planning a trip to Greece early next year that could involve a few days on the black sand beaches of Thera, I have been doing a bit of research on both the place and the legends of Atlantis.
"Atlantis the Lost City?" is one of the Dorling Kindersley Readers for young readers (Level 4, Proficient Readers), that combines lots of color photographs and detailed illustrations with informative text. Andrew Donkin basically informs young readers about the history of the search for Atlantis, looking at the original story told by Plato (which may have been meant as an allegory rather than a true tale), and then covering all of the various locations around the world where people have been convinced they have found the lost city/continent. Donkin takes pain to explain not only the reasons why a particular location, such as the Azores or Crete, were picked, but also the evidence that exists against those locations. Consequently, without explicitly intending to do so, "Atlantis the Lost City?" introduces young readers to how archaeologists do their work, both in terms of uncovering ancient treasures and in reasoning out where to look. Besides, you really cannot beat the price on these books.

It is hard to get an 8 year old to read, but my son loves this book. He prefers non-fiction so this was interesting and right up his alley. Well written with a beautiful layout.
