1908. This remarkable story about the lost city of Atlantis is the work of a little boy of nine years of age, at least it must be regarded so by those who do not believe in any hidden, occult or supernormal powers of mind and consciousness. By such, this book may be treated as a romance; but it is hoped that it will be found to be full of interest. This book was dictated by the child to his mother and she wrote it down as nearly as possible verbatim.

Children always have very beautiful dreams and memories of past lives come to them in dreams. The innocence of the child and the truth of history and clairvoyant powers inherent in human psyche are beautifully interwoven in this simple story. The small boy tells his mother a story .The strange old visitor from Atlantis, Jonathen is telling him in his dreamlike trances many things which he in turn tells his mother and the mother takes it down , as if she is a psychologist or a Regression Therapist. Interesting for its simplicity and innocence. The term for the stone fort under the ocean is having a resemblance to South Indian,Dravidian Tamil/Malayalam word Kallingu being a stone construction (The term used in the book has Callinganiai with a C pronounced as K) and Anai meaning a dam or obstruction in flow of water. Kalinga , was a ancient port city in East India and Kalankarai a lighthouse on seashore. These terms of the oceanic people is heard by the clairvoyent child according to the author.
