i LOVE these books. picked this first one up at a school book fair in 6th grade and was obsessed for years. they helped me get through some hard times. when i was angry and sad i would pick up these books and just escape into this wonderful world of kids that can morph into animals, andalites, and yeerks. there are real moral dilemmas and the fact that life can be pretty messed up really struck a chord with me. most kid books(or at least the ones i was reading at the time) just usually didn't dig that deep. along with this the books are also really funny(Ax going crazy in the cinnabon shop/cassie's mom's "Snoop Diggity Dog" haha). oh and when you flipped through the pages and the images at the corners morphed, also awesome. once i got to high school i became really busy with sports and i never finished the series. flash forward a couple years. i graduate and start working at a thrift store and low and behold what books did i see coming in...ANIMORPHS! i still had the first 30 and decided to pick up the rest so i could finally finish the series. rereading them at 19, i loved them just as much as when i was a kid. they have a universal message, it doesn't matter how old you are. these books rule.
