Eleven-year-old Gregor and his two-year-old sister Boots fall into the Underland, a world under the world. They are greeted by giant cockroaches (crawlers) who believe Boots to be a princess. Also living in the Underland are humans, giant bats (flyers), giant spiders (spinners), and giant rats (gnawers). The rats invade the humans’ land and it’s up to Gregor (deemed the Warrior in the Prophecy of Gray) to stop the war.
I read Gregor The Overlander to my 7 and 9 year old sons. Before I finished reading it, the 7-year-old asked if our next book to read could be the next one in this series. I consider that a win. The story is interesting and moves along at a good pace. I highly recommend it for children and adults alike.
