The Lovereading4Kids comment

Gregor and the Marks of Secret by Suzanne Collins - the author of the blockbusting Hunger Games – is the story of a perilous fantasy adventure for young Gregor and his talkative little sister Boots, in their bid to save the Underland. It's only a few months since Gregor and Boots returned from the Underland, leaving their mother behind to heal from the plague. Though Gregor's family receives frequent updates on her condition, they all know Gregor must return to fulfill his role as the warrior who is key to the Underlanders' survival.

This could be the answer for parents with teens and younger siblings. if your teens are mad keen on Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games and you're being badgered by younger siblings to read it too, then give them Suzanne's Gregor series instead. It's a wonderful adventure.

This is Book Four in the Underland Chronicles series. The others are:

Gregor the Overlander: Book One

Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane: Book Two

Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods: Book Three

Gregor and the Code of Claw: Book Five (to be published in the UK August 2012)

About the Author

Suzanne Collins

Suzanne Collins has had a successful and prolific career writing for children's television. For preschool viewers, she penned multiple stories for the Emmy-nominated Little Bear and Oswald. She has worked on several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains it All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo. She received a Writer's Guild of America nomination for co-writing the critically acclaimed Rankin/Bass Christmas special, Santa, Baby! and most recently she was the head writer for Clifford’s Puppy Days.

Suzanne made her mark in children's literature with the New York Times–bestselling Underland Chronicles, which started with the acclaimed book Gregor the Overlander. In The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins continues to explore the effect of violence on those coming of age. She was inspired to write The Hunger Games when an idea formed whilst she flicked between television channels broadcasting real war coverage and reality television programmes.

The Hunger Games and the sequel Catching Fire have been successfully brought to the big screen.

Suzanne lives with her family in Connecticut.
