The original Animorph books helped introduce me to reading and the fact that they are now in graphic novels is just incredible. While it started out as a chapter book, I think it does so much better as a graphic novel. The illustrations just bring to life the “morphing abilities” of these characters and turns it into a thrill ride. Just like the Amulet series, this sci-fi adventure with have your kids jumping out of their seats wanting more.

The wildly popular, bestselling sci-fi series by Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant returns in a new full-color graphic novel series, adapted by Chris Grine. Sometimes weird things happen to people. Ask Jake. He could tell you about the night he and his friends saw a strange light in the sky that seemed to be heading right for them. That was the night five normal kids learned that humanity is under a silent attack -- and were given the power to fight back.
Now Jake, Rachel, Cassie, Tobias, and Marco can transform into some of the most dangerous creatures on Earth. And they must use that power to outsmart an evil greater than anything the world has ever seen. . . .
