Parents Need to Know
What's the story?

Families can talk about the story's blend of fantasy and historical fact. Does this make history more engaging, or more confusing? How would the story have been different if it relied entirely on fictional characters?
The Lost Kingdom can be described as steampunk, a type of science fiction that blends the old and the new. Have you read any other steampunk stories? What do you think makes steampunk so appealing?
Try the same technique yourself: Write a short fantasy based on an historical event or figure.
