|Book Description: When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment
building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats,
cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of
war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident.
A prophecy foretells that Gregor
has a role to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Gregor wants no part
of it -- until he realizes it's the only way to solve the mystery of his father's
disappearance. Reluctantly, Gregor embarks on a dangerous adventure
that will change both him and the Underland forever.
