Book 1 in a dark, original, twisty and totally unputdownable new series. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes will revisit the world of Panem sixty-four years before the events of The Hunger Games, starting on the morning of the reaping of the Tenth Hunger Games.
When things fall down, who lifts them up? What if the ground beneath your feet was not made of solid earth and stone but had been hollowed into hundreds of tunnels and passageways? What if there were mysterious forces in these tunnels? When twelve-year-old Gran's friend Catalina opens a doorway to underground, he will have no choice but to follow her, and help her save the town.
When darkness falls upon the city, only one heroic duo has the pedigree to deliver justice! Dog Man, the newest hero from the creator of Captain Underpants, is back and this time he's not alone. The heroic hound with a nose for justice now has a sidekick in the form of a super-cute kitten, and together they have a mysterious caper to sniff out!
