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.
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+
