Overview


The wildly popular series by K.A. Applegate is back! The first six books of Animorphs return, with striking new lenticular covers that morph.

When Tobias and his friends were given the power to morph, they were also given an important warning: Never stay in a morph for more than two hours. But Tobias broke the time limit, and now he's trapped in the body of a hawk -- forever. When he discovers an important Yeerk secret, Tobias knows he has to do everything in his power to destroy it. But to do so, he'll have to contend with a part of himself that's wrestling for control. A part that isn't human.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Miranda McClain
The ability to fly had been a dream come true for Tobias. But dreams that come true can sometimes turn out differently than expected, and being permanently transformed into a hawk was not the way Tobias had envisioned his life. While he struggles to maintain his human identity Tobias and his four friends Cassie, Jake, Rachel, and Marco, are faced with an even bigger challenge, in this third book in the "Animorphs" series. They must discover what the Yeerks, a parasitic alien race set to take over the Earth, are doing in the mountains outside their town. The group uses their unique morphing ability, given to them by another alien race, to become wolves and discovers the Yeerks are on a recognizance mission for air and water. In an attempt to expose the world domination plot of the evil alien invaders, Tobias and his friends destroy the Yeerk ship; but only after an intense battle involving Hork Bajir Warrior, an alien race in league with the Yeerk. The team barely escapes with their lives and Tobias develops a deeper understanding of what it means to be part hawk and part human. Fans of the "Animorphs" will learn more of the despicable Yeerk plot to control the Earth in this fast paced, action packed book, which also speaks to the struggle between human and animal in us all.

This was a great book. I think that it would be a fun book for kids to read. It is very intense and suspencefull. You should read all of them they are great. It was one of my all time favorite books ever. I think that the author really explained his charecters with alot of detail. My favorite charecter was Tobias because he always has alot of ideas and plans. If I would have to chose to stay as an animale it wold be a hawk too because they can fly and they have really good eye sifgt. That is why I loved this book.

Its about a boy named Tobias and he finds out that Visser Three needs water to drink or he's dead.

This is an outstanding book. It's the reason I love Animorphs: it gets right down into the mind of the character and makes him seem so real. Honestly, it almost made me cry. I just love Tobias, and this is the best book about him.

This book takes us into the mind of Tobias, the trapped animrph, and his struggle to keep a human mind.K.A.A. transfers us to a battle of minds and I commend K.A.for her lesson on how sometimes you have to give up somethng to win a battle of your own to win a larger battle. Danielle Jones age 11.

Well, I would choose a Homo Sapins with andalite technology so I could morph. And have friends that don't scream and run away in terror. BTW Book is really, REALLY good.
