Gregor the Overlander!

Having to be the one of the first students to be in Middle School is a very exciting change. The first thing that caught my eyes instantly was the library. There were so many books to choose from. I decided to ask Ms. Stacia, our helpful librarian, for some suggestions. She introduced me to this book called “Gregor the Overlander” and said that it was her all-time favorite book.

 This book is about a boy named Gregor and his little sister named Boots who fell into the strange Underland beneath New York City. Gregor is on a quest to save his father who also had fallen into the strange Underland about two years ago. On the quest, they meet huge talking rats, cockroaches, spiders, etc.

I can’t just explain how much I love this book. It has become one of my favorite books. Since I love this book so much, I decided to also borrow the second book. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in it. I think that everyone in the whole school should read this book because it’s such a great book.

  2. This book is really good. I read it already! It is incredibly good. Oh hi, Mrs. Beth. I really like Ms. Stacia's cool hair style. :D

  3. You was right Leena, this book is fantastic. I'm on chapter 3 now! Looking forware for the second book! By the way thanks for your recomend.

  4. Tin - I'm so glad that you're enjoying the book! The rest of the series is just as good.

    Tony - great to hear you've heard of the series and enjoyed it too! I love it.

    Like my mom... my favorite character is Boots. :)

  5. Ms Stacia, do you have all of the 5 books?

  6. If you like the Gregor books, you might like the Rowan of Rin series too!

  7. OK! I'll try, I hope the library have it :)

  8. We do! We have three different Rowan of Rin stories... and I agree, they are good ones too.
    Tin, I think you might also like the book, Peter and the Starcatchers... it is a GREAT fantasy/adventure book! (We have all year though... and the books will be here!)
