Usually I am not a huge fan of the "child falls into another world" sub-genre of fantasy, but this one was better than most.It took quite a while to get going -- about 25 percent of the book is spent just on worldbuilding and introducing characters and the concept of "The Underland." I got a little ...

Quite elementary, but a fun enough story. Probably targeted for 4th to 8th graders. I'll do a full review when I finish the series.********There must be a lot of Suzanne Collins fans out there reviewing with their hearts, because there's no way the books I just read deserve the glowing reviews the...

Gregor is eleven years old. He lives with his mom, grandmother, and two little sisters, Lizzie, seven, and Boots, who's just two. His dad--a fun, gentle, sax-playing, intellectually inquisitive man--vanished while his mom was pregnant with Boots. It's the beginning of a hot, sticky New York summer, ...

This book was a landmark for me in a couple different ways. First and foremost, it was written by Suzanne Collins, who, of course, wrote The Hunger Games. You have to understand - The Hunger Games was the first YA book I ever read. It's what really sealed my love for the genre. I enjoyed Catching Fi...

Suzanne Collins sure knows how to write in a way that makes you feel like you're watching a movie. She did this with the [b:The Hunger Games|2767052|The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1)|Suzanne Collins|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1358275334s/2767052.jpg|2792775] and I think she did...

This series is Suzanne Collins before the whole Hunger Games phenomena :) I picked this one up at a library sale ages ago. At the time I didn’t even associate Hunger Games Collins with this book because the two are so very different. But, I will say Collins knows how to spin a good story and for a ...

I loved everything about this middle-grade children's book. It is actually Suzanne Collins' very first novel, pre-Hunger Games. It shares a lot with her more famous trilogy. Fast pacing. An ordinary kid forced by extraordinary circumstances into becoming a leader, a hero. Good good guys and bad bad ...
Henry Martin - Author of contemporary Literary Fiction
Being an active parent, I get to read at least four books every day (small books) with some larger volumes thrown into the mix. Because of the volume, I generally chose not to review these books, nevertheless, every now and then I have to make an exception. My favorite 'kid's authors' are Kate di Ca...

A fall-through-the-rabbit-hole-into-an-alternate-world story. Specifically, falling through a grate behind the dryer in a laundry room and landing in an underground city populated by humans who cohabit the same space with giant-sized cockroaches, bats and rats -- of of which talk, by the way. The 'w...
