    Comments about Gregor the Overlander:

    Bought it for my son 10 and we both (mum) enjoyed it so much so we bought the whole series. Fast pace story with engaging characters. I think you could use it as a bed time story for reluctant readers or for a kid that likes to read.

    Suzanne Collins

    Since 1991, Suzanne Collins has been busy 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. For preschool viewers, she penned multiple stories for the Emmy-nominated Little Bear and Oswald. She also co-wrote the critically acclaimed Rankin/Bass Christmas special, Santa, Baby! Most recently she was the Head Writer for Scholastic Entertainment’s Clifford’s Puppy Days, and a freelancer on Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!

    While working on a Kids WB show called Generation O! she met children’s author James Proimos, who talked her into giving children’s books a try.

    Thinking one day about Alice in Wonderland, she was struck by how pastoral the setting must seem to kids who, like her own, lived in urban surroundings. In New York City, you’re much more likely to fall down a manhole than a rabbit hole and, if you do, you’re not going to find a tea party. What you might find...? Well, that’s the story of Gregor the Overlander, the first book in her five-part fantasy/war series, The Underland Chronicles.

    Her next series, The Hunger Games Trilogy, is an international bestseller.

    At present, Suzanne is at work on a picture book with James Proimos.

    She currently lives in Connecticut with her family and a pair of feral kittens they adopted from their backyard.
