Imagine if you could transform into a hawk flying high above the trees, or an elephant stampeding through an exotic jungle. Wouldn't it be cool to trade places with your favorite animal for an hour or two?
Well, that's the special power given to the Animorphs! Jake, Rachel, Marco, Cassie, and Tobias were five average teens before they encountered an injured alien, who gave them the ability to morph into any animal they touch. Now Jake spends time in the body of his dog Homer, while Marco becomes a 400-pound gorilla.
But life isn't all fun and games for the Animorphs. These friends must rely on their new powers to defend Earth against an army of alien invaders called Yeerks, brutal extraterrestrials that take control of the human body. Follow these five heroic teens as they try to save the world from the evil Yeerks in The Invasion, the first installment of the Animorphs series by K.A. Applegate.
If you're looking for a hot summer read with adventure and suspense, or you just have a love of animals, I highly recommend picking up The Invasion, the first book in a series that will be hard to put back down. Read an excerpt now!
