Format: Hardcover
Maurice Gee's book Under the Mountain is an amazing book. It was first read to me when I was only about eight years old, and I just found a copy and re-read it. Rachel and Theo Matheson are twins, and apart from having red hair, they seem to be perfectly normal kids. Until they visit Auckland and are encountered by a strange old man, and a couple of freaky neighbours. The twins discover that they are a crucial part in the war between two alien races. Rachel and Theo learn that only red-haired twins can save their world from destruction by huge, powerful alien creatures. This is a great book, and I'd recommend it to people of all ages. I know my parents liked it just as much as my brother and me. The characters are believable, and the plot is well thought out. Although I prefer Maurice Gee's O series, I still love this book.

A great novel! I happily recall watching the original TV series from New Zealand in the early 80s on Nickelodeon. Reading the novel again brought back many happy memories.
