Rich in suspense and brimming with adventure, the New York Times-bestselling Underland Chronicles unfold the fate of the Underland and the great warrior, Gregor. Suzanne Collins is also the author of the bestselling Hunger Games trilogy.
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.

Good Book - but a little dark - no pun intended!
My family have enjoyed the Underland Chronicles very much! The story is captivating and the narrator is enjoyable. My only caution to parents is that this book has a darker side to it, as do all Suzanne Collins books. The struggles Gregor has over the ethics of war are pretty intense for younger kids. But my kids really enjoyed the entire series. They even spent their allowance buying the last 3 of the audio-books themselves - which were not cheap! I think my only criticism of the audiobook is that the narrator changes the voice of Rip-Red in the second book - but I actually liked this voice better than in the first book!
Ok so very good book I am on the fourth but on the first on the audio book on track 24 date on May 10 2019
