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
