Gregor the Overlander is the first in a series of books written by the author of The Hunger Games. These books however, are aimed at a younger audience from about 9 years old. The story concerns an 11 year old boy called Gregor who ends up following his little sister and having a series of adventures in the Underland, a place beneath the city where giant bats, cockroaches, spiders and rats live. There’s action and adventure, a quest, goodies and baddies with Gregor’s ultimate aim of making it home running through the book. It’s an exciting read as you get drawn into the world of the Underland and come to care about the creatures who live there (some of whom become Gregor’s friends). A great read for kids so why not give it a try?
