When eleven-year-old Gregor follows his little sister through a grate in the laundry room of their New York apartment, he hurtles into the dark Underland beneath the city. There, humans live uneasily beside giant spiders, bats, cockroaches, and rats--but the fragile peace is about to fall apart.
Gregor wants no part of a conflict between these creepy creatures. He just wants to find his way home. But when he discovers that a strange prophecy foretells a role for him in the Underland's uncertain future, he realizes it might be the only way to solve the biggest mystery of his life. Little does he know his quest will change him and the Underland forever.
Rich in suspense and brimming with adventure, Suzanne Collin's debut marked a thrilling new talent, and introduced a character no young reader will ever forget.
Eleven-year-old Gregor was prepared for a sweltering, uneventful New York City summer babysitting his little sister Boots when an unbelievable, terrifying adventure pulls them--via an air vent--into a dark world filled with giant insects, bats, and pale people with purple eyes. Gregor reluctantly becomes involved in a life-changing prophecy involving the quest for his long-missing father and saving the citizens of Underland. This is the first book in the Underland Chronicles; others include GREGOR AND THE PROPHECY OF BANE and GREGOR AND THE CURSE OF THE WARMBLOODS.
