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.

About the Author


C'est en travaillant sur le scenario d'une serie televisee pour enfants, une activite qu'elle pratique depuis 1991, que Suzanne Collins se decouvre l'envie d'ecrire des romans jeunesse. Un peu plus tard, Alice au pays des merveilles lui inspire Gregor le Surterrien: frappee par le cote pastoral de ce texte, si different du monde urbain auquel sont confrontes les petits Americains, elle imagine ce qu'ils pourraient trouver en tombant sous leur ville...; Cinq volumes de cette serie ont deja paru aux USA. Mais c'est surtout sa serie HUNGER GAMES qui l'aura rendue celebre.
