The Gregor the Overlander (Scholastic Gold) (The Underland Chronicles #1) (Paperback)
When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident. A prophecy foretells that Gregor has a role to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Gregor wants no part of it -- until he realizes it's the only way to solve the mystery of his father's disappearance. Reluctantly, Gregor embarks on a dangerous adventure that will change both him and the Underland forever.
This unforgettable novel by Suzanne Collins, the international bestselling author of the Hunger Games series, is rich in suspense and brimming with adventure.
About the Author
"Luminous, supremely absorbing." --Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
"Collins creates a fascinating, vivid, highly original world and a superb story to go along with it, and Gregor is endearing as a caring, responsible big brother who rises triumphantly to every challenge. This is sure to be a solid hit with young fantasy fans." --Booklist
"In this accessible, almost-cinematic fantasy, Gregor and his two-year-old sister fall into an amazing underground world. . . . This is an engrossing adventure for fantasy fans and for those new to the genre." --School Library Journal
"Collins does a grand job of world-building . . . Unlike Gregor who cannot wait to leave, readers will likely find [the Underland] to be a fantastically engaging place." -- Publishers Weekly, STARRED
"Cliffhanger chapter endings propel the story forward to its inevitable but nevertheless immensely satisfying conclusion, which, happily for readers, hints at more heart-pounding journeys to the center of the earth." --The Horn Book
