Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I am reading this series again because I am using it for homeschooling my granddaughter. It is an excellent adventures series with a lot of interesting twists.
Gregor follows his 2 year old sister down a hole behind the washing machines in his apartment laundry room. They end up in a world that has existed under the world we know of since the earliest days of America. There is a race of humans who are his descendants. They are very pale and have violet eyes, but the are otherwise the same as the Overlanders.
In their palace, there is a room of prophecies and it appears that Gregor and his sister are the Overlanders whose coming was predicted, but they aren't the first ones to come down from above. Gregor's father has been missing for about 3 years and Gregor learns that he had been taken by the rats, but there is some indication that he is alive.
