About this title

Synopsis:

According to Plato, eleven thousand years ago a shining city with a marvelous civilization stood on a great island in the ocean. And then, disaster struck. Join the search for the lost city of Atlantis.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5–The strength of this book lies in its eye-catching artwork. DeMolay provides a brief, but clear introduction to the mystery of the lost city, breaking up information into accessible bits. Beginning with a few of the many questions surrounding Atlantis, he then shows Plato telling his students its story, citing two of the philosopher's works as the origin of the first tales about it. Readers are given a glimpse of the technologically advanced city and of the mythology surrounding it, but much of this slim volume focuses on the question of where it may have been located. DeMolay discusses several possibilities, including the Azores Islands, Crete, and Cuba. Given the book's brevity and design, the table of contents hardly seems necessary, and the glossary and index also have little utility. No bibliography is provided, and the single Web site listed is unimpressive. Readers may, however, find the random collection of facts in the Did You Know? section interesting. While this book may appeal to reluctant readers and help to pique an interest in Atlantis, readers are likely to find Holly Wallace's The Mystery of Atlantis (Heinemann Library, 1999) more satisfying.–Neala Arnold, St. Francis Elementary School, MN
