Under The Mountain – Maurice Gee

Chosen by Suzy

A 1979 children’s book that sees twins Rachel and Theo Matheson travel beneath Auckland’s extinct volcanoes to prevent the destruction of the world.

✎ “One of the best children’s books ever.  The joy of such recognisable landmarks when I read this as a child was just as strong when I read this as an adult.  Lake Pupuke was never the same to me after this book.  Wonderfully paced with just the right amount of terror.  A must read for all red-heads, you are powerful beings you know!” – Suzy

✎ “There are many moralistic considerations to glean from this story, one of the reasons why it is a fantastic book choice for readers of all ages. And of course the adventurous, humanity saving story line is another!” – Rachel
