Gregor the Overlander - book recommendation #iLoveMG

This is part of my continuing series, #iLoveMG , where I share middle grade books that my fifth graders recommend. (Please note that my fifth graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for fifth graders.) Or check out #3rdfor3rd for recommendations from when I taught third grade.

Gregor the Overlander

Recommended by Anonymous

My book is called Gregor the Overlander. It is about a boy named Gregor and a toddler named Boots. Gregor also has a sister named Lizzie. Gregor’s dad mysteriously disappeared about 2 and a half years ago. When Boots falls into a grate in their basement with Gregor, they fall into a dark underworld. The humans live in a dark world along with giant creatures. Gregor and his sister must find a way out, but when they discover that they are part of a cryptic prophecy, they must complete the quest along with 10 others in order to find their way home. 

I would rate this book 5/5 stars because I think it is very well written and it makes you so that you can’t stop reading at one certain point.

  1. I love this book! In fact, I love the entire series! The Kids' Indie Next List (used to be called Booksense) used my mini-reviews for all of them. The Gregor books were written long before Suzanne Collins wrote The Hunger Games. So glad kids are still reading these books!
