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 strange 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. Gregor embarks on a dangerous adventure that will change both him and the Underland forever.

When 11-year-old Gregor discovers an entire world hidden below his apartment in New York, complete with giant critters, ancient prophecies, and an underground city full of purple-skinned people with a stand-offish 12-year-old as their queen, he thinks he's seen it all. But as he tries to rescue his 3-year-old sister Boots, who has been kidnapped by giant talking cockroaches who call her 'Princess,' while simultaneously trying to avoid a prophecy that declares him the 'Warrior' the underground city has been waiting for, he begins to wonder if he isn't in a bit over his head. Full of adventure, humor, and an admirably creative assortment of characters, the first installment of Suzanne Collins' five-book series is a must read for all! Recommended ages 8-17+
