What goes on inside the Earth? Where is the longest tunnel in the world? Do people really live in caves? Can you live, work and shop - all underground? Could you really travel to the centre of the Earth? Find out about fossils - and the bones of dragons! It's all in here. Get the facts. Then read 'The Railway Ghost', a story about what happens when the past meets the present - and you are facing death.
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.
