Exciting fantasy adventure story for young adults, printed in Large Print. An unbelievable discovery by a young boy suddenly puts the underwater city in great danger. The effects are still felt in the follow up book, QUEST FOR ATLANTIS by Frances Mary Hendry (also in Large Print). A creak, a crunching growl, a roar. A brief dazzle of light. He tried to leap for the wall, as the Coal had told him to do, but his bad ankle gave way. The roof fell in... Far below the Antarctic ice, the folk of Atlantis have lived for centuries, safe from the cold and danger Outside. But when a boy called Mungith makes an unbelievable discovery in the old mines, the Atlantans' lives are suddenly in great danger. Then tragedy hits the kingdom, and Mungith knows he will be blamed - unless he can somehow restore peace and well-being to his people.
