Gregor the Overlander

Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins (0-439-43536-6)
It is very rare to find a children’s fantasy title that breaks into new territory, but this is one. Gregor and his toddler sister, Boots, fall through a duct in their laundry room into the Underland. It is a world filled with talking rats, spiders, bats, roaches and humans. The story follows a quest format, but with such action and spirit that it never drags.
Recommend this title to kids who enjoy fantasy. It will open their eyes to the possibilities out there beyond Harry Potter. Even better, the end hints at a sequel to come!

  1. This book is just as good as a Harry Potter book. I couldn’t put it down and was sad when it ended but there will be a sequel. The book will keep you guessing until the very end


  2. I liked this novel I didn’t love it because TWILIGHT is the best read for me ! This book was good until chapter 23 where it goes from half of 25 to 26,27. I thought that’s wierd and went to confront somebody at the library. They said it is a misprint and to look in the back of the book so I went back after the acknolegments and there comes the half of 25 and 26 and 27 again so I never got to read chapter 24 could somebody fill me in plz!
