whimsical tales of hope and ambition

Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins. Collins is better known for a different series, but I think the Underland Chronicles is where she really shines. Gregor, with his toddler sister Boots, fall through a laundry chute in New York City and ends up in the Underland… a terrifying place populated by pale skinned people that fly on giant bats, giant cockroaches that worship his sister, and giant rats that seem to want humans dead. The underlanders were guided there by the prophecies of Sandwich, and in each book Gregor has to solve a prophecy to save the Underland.
