Description

What was the Black Death? How many people did it kill? And how did it kill them? Find out about plagues we have now. What causes them? What can we do about it? Get the facts. Then read 'The Lost Village' - a story about plagues and people. After a thousand years, who's the winner?

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.
