From Death Valley to jungle temples where humans were sacrificed, from a giant lake under the ice to a pirate treasure that nobody can reach. There are some weird places in the world. Find out all about them. Get the facts. Then read 'The Lost Tribe', a story about what might have happened to a race of tiny humans.

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.


"Your book, Weird Places, is a magnificent book."
