Animorphs Writing Contest

9780545291514Do you want a chance to win a Nintendo 3DS™ and a set of signed Animorphs books? Enter the Animorphs Writing Contest and you could win both!

For those of you not familiar with the Animorphs series, they're action-packed books about five friends who morph into animals in order to defeat the alien Controllers that have invaded Earth.

To enter the contest, all you have to do is write an essay (250 words or less) explaining which animal morph you would choose for yourself and why. The best part is the winner will be picked by K.A. Applegate, the author of Animorphs!

Find out more about the contest on the Animorphs website. While you're there, you can morph the characters into animals yourself and add them to your friends in your STACKS profile.

And just 'cuz I'm curious, leave a Comment here to tell us which morph you would be. Good luck!

    ELFANGOR! Sorry I’m having a moment. Plus THE FORGOTTEN IS IN MY H0USE. And it’s probably a dream hmm I’m near the NO! Don’t think about it! Let the dream last!
    “Well, that does it,” Marco said flatly. “We have moved permanently to bizare-o world. We’ve traveled in time, we’re in a jungle fighting brain-stealing aleins and ten thousand annoying species of bugs, and our resident space cadet is a monkey. Somebody–” “–wake me up when we get back to reality.” “–wake me up when we get back to reality.” LOL!

    Oh and also can you create anouther one of these? Like more contests (I would probably beg my mom to enter everyone!)More writing things too! Like maybe if you could date any charactor (just a thought)who would it be and why? Or maybe if you were to be a yeerk would you be volentary or the other one? Just some suggestions. I’m going to go before you get really annoyed with my awesomness.

    I wish I could morph. I wish I could meet Elfangor. (I kind of have a crush on him.) And also the reason Tobias doesn’t become human is the same reason he was depressed before the Ellimist who never interferes interfered. He had a horrible life as a human and want’s to feel important. (And live up to his dad!) I’m probably the biggest animorph fan ever! Because no one can beat my awesomness. And if your asking. I’m not vain I just have a really high self esteem. Oh and also what do people have against the show? I liked it…sure the tecnology isn’t the best but… Hey if your an andalite and for some odd reason is on this…please tell me is Elfangor alive? Is he married? Yeah somtimes I wonder what I think of Loren.

    No idea what I am doing. I just saw a perfect morphing cube! I don’t know if it was makeshift or not… But I saw it on a dive over 220+mph!

    All the Inkheart news that’s fit to printThursday, December 22, 2011Too much to lose? calmblue21When I was young I had a girlfriend.Then we got torn apart and I didn’t get told! Well 2 years later and now I regret?!I hold this opinion because: a)I know what’s it like to lose someone/something you loved most and b)I’m starting to think nobody cares!Some people may disagree with me. They think that it’s stupid, I mean I should’ve done that after we got torn apart however I didn’t back then and now I do that?! However my opinion is better because it sometimes hard to let go!So it can be sad at times. And that’s ok however I did cry at my christmas party. If you care please help me by telling me what to do!

    This is one of my favorite series of books ever! But I think I like the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series more.

    Anyway… Why do we have to be constrained by reality. I just know by about 50 or 60 years from now, someone will invent morphing! :D

    I love animorphs because they aren’t too long, and they just draw you into the tale. My favorite morph would be into a hawk, like Tobias. (YES<3 I’M ADDICTED!!!) =D I would feel so free, soaring through the air like that!

    animorphs is an epic series. Id probably morph into a penegrine falcon because it would be cool to fly and dive at 200 mph.
