Welcome to The Lost World Read 2009!

You’ve got hold of a book that is part of the UK’s largest reading campaign. The quick read edition has been created especially for The Lost World Read - it's a version of The Lost World which features the highlights of the story. The cover stars are the adventurous duo Wallace & Gromit.

In The Lost World investigative journalist Ed Malone joins a band of explorers. They go to South America to prove that deep in the jungle there is a forgotten world where dinosaurs still survive. What do they find - and will they make it home to tell the tale?

And, welcome to The Lost Book!

The Lost Book is a collaborative adventure in storytelling. It’s taking place online and anyone can join in. At its heart is an animated web series: the adventures of 21st century investigative journalist Aileen Adler.

There are loads of ways you can get involved and it won’t cost you anything. You can help us to write the story for the web series. You can write a book in our weekly microstory competition. You can enter our soundtrack competition by creating your own music for the web series. You can produce your own animation.

And, you can read this book, tell us what you thought of it, give it away, and follow its journey. So join in, wherever you are, and have fun!

(Oh, and sometimes you’ll need a password to get into sections of Only people with a copy of this book will have the password, so these areas will be just for you. The password is: the first word on page 9 of this book. Don’t forget!)

I woke up to find it on the floor. It was not there the night before. I think it must have been the book fairy! Either that or my Daddy was in The Vaults and brought it home. I'm not sure I believe in the book fairy but I'm looking forward to reading the book.
