The speech bubbles and strip cartoon-style illustrations create a dynamic format that encourages readers to engage with the characters and get involved in the story. "Fact or Fiction?" looks at different interpretations of these tales and what may be the reality behind the mythology that has inspired artists and writers throughout the centuries. It also features maps and photographs of the rumoured locations of each lost city, and includes a glossary, an index and recommended further reading. It helps achieve goals of Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14. It fits into Key Stage 2 English and is an ideal text for shared and guided reading for Key Stage 2 pupils.
