Project Animorphs: Book #8 The Alien

Book 8: The Alien Publishing Date: July 1997 Narrator: Ax My rating: This book was a BIG DEAL when I was a kid because it was the first time a representation of an Andalite would appear on the cover.

Project Animorphs: Megamorphs #1: The Andalite’s Gift

Megamorphs #1: The Andalite’s Gift Publishing Date: June 1997 Narrator: All My rating: In the first Megamorphs, the ‘companion’ series (not quite a spin off, not quite a continuation), the Animorphs fight a morph-hunting alien made of dust while Rachel has amnesia. This companion series is special because the covers don’t follow the norm, the […]

Book 7: The Stranger Publishing Date: April 1997 Narrator: Rachel My rating: Rachel’s second go at narrating gives un Anifans (I just made that up, am I cool or what? … *crickets*) a real fight that for the very first time seems likely the Animorphs will lose… except that some interdimensional galactic space god called the […]
