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!

"It was bad when Jake found out his brother was one of them—a Human-Controller, a slave. But that was nothing compared to what he’s dealing with now. When the Animorphs decide to visit the Yeerk’s new base, it seems simple. But then they get caught and Jake falls—just for a moment—into the Yeerk pool. Now they’re out, and his friends can’t see it. To them he’s just like normal. But Jake is screaming for help. His worst fear has finally come true. He’s become the enemy."

This book makes the last one that I have Scholastic's 'Discussion Questions' for, so alas this will be the final time we have them. (Unless anyone wants to make their own for next time?)

It was bad enough when Jake found out his older brother was one of them. It was even worse when Tobias stayed in his morph too long. But nothing compares to the horror the Animorphs are about to face.  Nothing.
Jake,Rachel, Tobias, Cassie and Marco have a feeling they know where the Yeerks' new base is located. And they've even figured out how to get in-how many people will notice a few flies on the wall? But they never figured they might get caught. Or that Jake could fall into the Yeerk pool. That jake could become a human-controller.
A Yeerk.
The enemy.

Things from this book have come up over at RAF. My main question is...how could the yeerk try to morph an insect? Wouldn't it explode Jake's head? The falcon's head might have been big enough but does the yeerk go into z-space for tiny morphs? And there was talk about things like if the Yeerk could morph the human to Yeerk and infest someone else lol

I always get sad when I read the info Jake finds out about Tom.  Should they have tried to save him earlier like they did Jake?

I keep remembering the demorph behind the fridge scene...it was good Jake was able to talk his way out of it lol

This is where we first meet Crayak but we don't know his name yet. I'm curious if KAA was inspired by Stephen King. He uses the red eye in connection with his Randall Flagg character in The Stand and apparently the Dark Tower series although I've never read it.

Here we also have Temrash talking about how no host has ever resisted a Yeerk and won...was it here we were asking about this or RAF that it came up? I can't remember...maybe AniJen knows. I thought of the idea that the Yeerks must know of the YPM even if they don't like them. And we do find out later that they can resist in small ways sometimes...

Here is the first use of the well-known cockroach morph.

Funny: The red-tail airlines joke. And Tobias's indignity about having a flea.

Next week: The Stranger: Meet the Ellimist

Summary

It was really bad when Jake found out his older brother was one of them. It was even worse when Tobias stayed in his morph too long. But nothing compares to the horror the Animorphs are about to face. Nothing.

Jake, Rachel, Tobias, Cassie, and Marco have a feeling they know where the Yeerks’ new base is located. And they’ve even figured out how to get in – how many people will really notice a few flies on the wall? But they never figured that they might get caught. Or that Jake could fall into the Yeerk pool. That Jake could become a human-Controller.

A Yeerk.

The Enemy.

Prompt:
Enemy

Questions:

- Discuss Jake’s relationship with his brother. Does the added stress of ‘living with the enemy’ make him better or worse at fighting the Yeerks and being a leader?

- Jake starts to ask himself a very important question – about whether or not he’ll have to destroy his own brother. Why didn’t he use the word ‘kill?’ At this point in the series, do you think he could have killed Tom if the need had arisen?

- Compare Jake’s hesitance about his brother with his relatively easy decision to Jacuzzi the Yeerks to death.

- The kids have (almost) no problem killing Hork-Bajir- or Taxxon-Controllers, but consider it ‘good instinct’ to simply incapacitate the Human-Controllers. Discuss.

- Did Jake’s ordeal with Temrash give him a different view on his enemy? Did it for you?

Rules:
- 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.
