The Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins is about a boy named Gregor who lives with his family in an apartment building in New York. While he is in the laundry room, his 2-year-old sister gets pulled into a vent, and Gregor had to follow her. They fall and fall, then land at the bottom in a world of tunnels and caves underground. This is called the Underland, and the five books are about Gregor’s adventures there.
My class read this book in Language Arts (thanks Mrs. Hayes!) and I decided, along with some other classmates, to read the rest of the series. I’m happy I did, because they are AWESOME!!! I really like this author because she does an amazing job of making you feel like you are there and you can envision everything in your mind. This series would appeal to girls and boys alike. These books are on a 6th-7th grade reading level.
