Years ago, back when I was young (say 3rd or 4th grade) I remember reading a library book and I've been trying to find that book to reread again. I don't know the title, nor the author and can only remember bits and pieces of the story.

What I can remember is the story revolves around a small school age boy (think it was a boy). One day the boy sees a small hatch open up in the floor and a small man peeks out - the man notices the boy looking at him and then quickly closes the hatch. Later the boy somehow either catches the man or gets the hatch open, and then he goes into the hatch and descends a ladder to find an underground world. Only thing I can remember about the world is that there were mushrooms - small regular sized ones and ones big as a house. That's it, that's all I remember. I've tried to find the book over the years, but the nearest I've come to that was Eleanor Cameron's Mushroom Planet series and that wasn't it.

Now recently I ran across this "The Secret World of OG" book by Pierre Berton and it seemed to maybe be what I was looking for. So I bought a copy and read it. On the surface it has many of the elements of the story I was looking for - hatch in floor, mysterious creature/man, kids adventuring into an underground world, and mushrooms. But still there are things that don't match my memory. So what I'm guessing, is that given the age I was when I read the book and the length of time since then - I've probably mixed up elements of several different books and imagined that they were just one. I'm guessing I read this OG book back when I was a child and just forgotten about it.

The story is a good one - but I would imagine that it might not meet the sensibilities of some of today's parents. There is some fantasy violence may be more intense than what parents might want their kids exposed to. Nothing bloody or deadly - but still might scare some children. For example - there is a scene where a noose is around a young boy's neck and he's in danger of being hung. Today's pre-teen aged children might be more of the target reader for this story.

The book I bought is the 30th Anniversary Edition paperback. It's illustrated though out the book with black and white line drawings and some of them have elements that are colored green.

All-in-all it's a good book / story - and I think that maybe now I can quit looking for the one I was searching for.

We got this because my son's youth opera company is performing the opera of this story and we wanted to be familiar with it. It's a wonderful story!

My second grade teacher read this exciting book to us. Thirty years later, I wanted to read it again to see why I liked it so much as a kid. (Remembering the title as "Og", I was thrilled Amazon carried it.) Well, it worked it's magic on me and a group of children I shared it with. They were as captivated as I was, at their age. It is truly a timeless book to share!

Bought this book when I finally discovered the Saturday morning cartoon special of the same name that I remembered from way back when... I'd had no idea this started as a book. I think I enjoyed the book more than the cartoon as an adult. Definitely a great companion to the cartoon.

My grade 4 teacher read this one to the class, and we were mesmerized. I have fondly remembered this story for 20+ yrs, and had been trying to find it. Now way out of print, I finally found a copy -- thank goodness for Amazon and used books!

This story prepped me for The Hobbit, and later the Lord of the Rings. I do not remember much from my childhood reading, but this was a stand out. Now that I've read it again it's not exactly intellectually challenging for adults, but for a 10yr old who likes to explore, this book is great fun.

I loved this book as a child! I purchased this book so my grandson could learn about "The Secret World of Og". Great find!
The first time I read this book was when I was in 3rd grade. I'd read it every year after that until I graduated high school. Now, I' m forty plus and I still open this book whenever I want light adventure. This story has everything, humor, adventure, tension. I recommend it for everyone no matter what age.
