Product Description

First in a sizzling fantasy series by the author of The Hunger Games.

When eleven-year-old Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his New York apartment building, he discovers a world he never knew existed. The Underland is a place of darkness and unrest, where giant spiders, rats and cockroaches reign supreme. All Gregor wants is to get out of there, but this eerie world holds the key to a dark secret. The murky corners of the Underland hide the truth behind his father’s mysterious disappearance. Can Gregor finally bring the facts to light? As thrilling as The Hunger Games – with more revolting monsters!

Bestselling author Suzanne Collins first made her mark in children’s literature with the New York Times bestselling Underland Chronicles series for middle grade readers. Her debut for readers aged 12 and up, The Hunger Games immediately became a New York Times bestseller, appealing to both teen readers and adults. It was called “addictive” by Stephen King in Entertainment Weekly, and “amazing” by Stephenie Meyer on her website, and was named a New York Times Notable Book of 2008 and a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice.

Catching Fire, the second book in The Hunger Games trilogy, debuted at #1 on the USA Today bestseller list and simultaneously appeared at #1 on the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. It was named a Time Magazine Top Ten Fiction Book of 2009, a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice, and a People Magazine (Top 10)Best Book of 2009. Mockingjay, the thrilling final installment in trilogy, was published to worldwide acclaim in 2010.

Foreign rights for The Hunger Games and its sequels have been sold in over 39 countries to date. In April 2010, Suzanne Collins was named to the TIME 100 list of “the world’s most influential people.” Lionsgate will release The Hunger Games movie in March 2012, with Oscar-nominated Jennifer Lawrence starring as Katniss.

Suzanne has also had a successful and prolific career writing for children’s television. She has worked on the staffs of several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains It All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo. She received a Writers Guild of America nomination in animation for co-writing the critically acclaimed Santa, Baby!

Suzanne Collins lives with her family in Connecticut.
