Character Confidential: 3 Questions for Gregor the Overlander
Suzanne Collins' series The Underland Chronicles takes you to a war-torn world miles under the city of New York. There, the humans and their bat allies are fighting against the giant rats who also live in the Underland. And at the center of it all is a 12-year-old boy named Gregor, who comes from our world, the Overland, and whom prophecy says is the warrior who will finally bring peace to the land.
Once Gregor returns from the Underland, I would love to ask him:
1. After your experience with war in the Underland, what advice would you give to Overland world leaders towards achieving peace among warring countries?
2. Knowing how many creatures died at the Bane's hand, would you still choose to let the Bane live as a baby?
3. The humans in the Underland believed the prophecies were going to come true exactly as predicted, while Ripred believed that nothing was predetermined, that people (and creatures) create their own destiny. How much did you and do you believe the prophecies?
What would YOU ask Gregor if you got the chance?
