Jake, Rachel, Cassie, Tobias, and Marco face a new reality — one filled with adventure, strange events, and powerful transformations. Five normal kids encountered an alien spaceship and their lives changed forever. Now the friend group can turn into any animal they desire, including the dangerous ones!  

This classic series has new graphic novel editions: Kids in grades 3 to 7 will be enthralled by the book Animorphs Graphix #1: The Invasion, a graphic novel with full-color, beautiful illustrations that tells the story of how Jake and his friends first saw a strange light in the sky. In Animorphs Graphix #2: The Visitor, Rachel (the daredevil of the group) is tasked with breaking into the home of assistant principal Mr. Chapman to find out more information about the evil aliens, Yeerks — who are secretly attacking Earth. But will Rachel be able to handle what she finds out? 

This series has important lessons about bravery, courage, and hope. It may be a science fantasy series, but your tween will be able to apply what they learn to other areas of their lives.
