So after 2 years of repeatedly suggesting and sweet-talking our collection managers and directors, our library system FINALLY (!!!) has the first 7 Animorphs books! They're the "new" editions w/the trippy covers, but *shrug*. Anyways, this is my display sign for it: )
Let me know what you think!

An updated version of my original review of #2 The Visitor, with better audio and video quality, and roughly eight more minutes of material!

Thought I'd jump in and let you all know that I have now added in the Relaunch edits for Animorphs #2 in the new update. You can see them at:

These are all the ones that I could find in my read of the reprint. Feel free to get a hold of me if you find any that I may have missed. :)

"If someone told you Earth was under a secret invasion, what would you think? Rachel had a hard time believing it, even after she and her friends saw what they saw - and received an incredible power. The power to become any animal they touch.

Rachel knew they were in danger form the start, so when it's suggested that they use their new powers to spy on one of their enemies, she rises to the challenge. But when she discovers what they'll have to do to win, will it be more than Rachel can handle?"

And on a non-book related note - for these first two series re-reads, I've tried to space them out a bit and give people time to get the books. For future books though, would you guys like me to continue waiting until a week or two, or would you rather I post them on the day each book comes out?

[This is the spoilery discussion post for this book! If you want to see the spoiler-free version and have fun discussing the book without considering the rest of the series, head over to here for the one at [ profile] reanimorphs.]

For those of you that have read them, how much has been changed from the original content? Were the rumours true, and in fact the content has been updated for modern audiences?

Thanks in advance!

If someone told you Earth was under a silent attack, there's a good chance you'd think they were pretty strange. If the same person said Earth's only means of defense depends on the actions and powers of five kids, you'd probably start to look for a quick exit. Guess what, it's all true.
Rachel and her friends knew they were in for some pretty strange stuff from the very beginning. How often do you un into a dying alien who gives you the power to morph into any animal you touch? But that was before they knew what they would be up against. Now they know. And they know what they have to do. Before it's too late...

I always wished Melissa would have been given a bigger role in the series myself.  She's mentioned a few times later and pops up maybe once or twice, not counting the alternate world in MM3.  Do you think she should have had a bigger role?

How does the Chapman we see here compare to the bratty Hendrick in ANdalite Chronicles? I bet he's really sorry by this time lol.  What's the timeline anyway...he sold out the human race, then got taken back to Earth with Loren, got married, had a kid, then got infested? Or his wife did first, then him.

Thoughts on Rachel's near-public morph scene? And she isn't the only one who did's wierd that Marco talks about it but then does it himself a couple books later.

Funny line: Rachel telling Marco he'd be unable to impress a girl because he'd eventually have to morph back to his real self. I can't recall the exact line at the moment.

Did they release this book and The Encounter together? All three are listed on the title list in front of this book.

I think this is the last book apart from the final one that uses head only morphs on the cover. It also drops the six morph line from book 1 and goes with three intermediate morphs between human and animal stage.

Re the shrew, shouldn't she have felt some anger or something? Aren't shrews supposed to be really mean things?

Note that Tobias says getting stuck isn't always fun...either KAA was adding to the ambiguity(sp?) or just writing Tobias as having had a few second thoughts now that it's too late.

The scene with Chapman being allowed to talk to the Visser is creepy.  I like how he fights a lot though. Too bad they never brought it up again later.

Hey this is kinda an appropriate book for today given the whole father aspect of the storyline. (it's father's day in the USA)

Prompt....a parent's love

Next week-The Encounter

Animorphs #2 - The Visitor


Rachel’s loyalty is tested when one of her old friends becomes the Animorphs’ key to infiltrating the Yeerk pool. Then it turns out that something is different about her friend… what happened to her?


There are a few times in this book where the Animorphs use their morphing powers to scare some random creeps. These people probably aren’t Controllers, so they’ve never heard of morphing. Write a short story (or draw a picture) about what the phenomenon seemed like from their perspective.


- It was risky for the Animorphs to abuse their morphing powers by using them out in the open, in front of strangers. It put them in a lot of danger, but in some ways it was worth the thrill. If you had that ability, what are some situations where you would be tempted to do the same? What else could Rachel have done when that stranger started following her?

- We get a glimpse of a creature that predates upon Yeerks. We only learn a little about the Yeerk home world over the course of the series. What else can we hypothesize about their ecosystem, based on this other species?

- How have things progressed, developed, and changed since the first book? The characters have done a lot of growing up already, under such tough circumstances, even though they’ve still got a long way to go.


- Common sense: be nice, be literate, be mature. If you can’t handle that, we’ll ask you to leave.

- Start on topic. If your conversation takes you into the land of ferrets and their evil quest to take over the world, run with it. But please at least start off talking about the book or subjects at hand.

- The questions and prompts are optional. Do not feel obliged to keep your comments only to what we have posted. They are a guide, a starting point, not a limitation.

- There is no time limit.

- Don’t delete your comments, unless it’s for the purpose of fixing typos.

- Keep your discussion to the current or previous books.
