Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Animorphs

“Engaging … impressive.” –School Library Journal

“There's clearly something about Animorphs that has kept kids enthralled.” –Publisher's Weekly

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
This is even more fun than the first one I read. The kids are still "morphing" into animals. This time, Cassie is the narrator. She "feels" a message—not in words, but as a feeling of urgency, which seems to come from somewhere very far away! To find out where it is coming from, Cassie must morph into various creatures; she describes the feeling of morphing so well that we feel that we are morphing with her. We find that it is not as much fun as we had originally thought it would be. Fish are really quite alien beings, and it is not until she realizes that marine mammals are more likely to help her that she ends up with dolphins—and eventually with a whale. The whale is very wise and very understanding, and helps Cassie find the source of the message—it is an Andalite (remember the Andalites? They are real aliens—visitors from another planet). Now we find out more about the Andalites and the Yeerks who have invaded Earth and plan to destroy it. Can five human teenagers and one young Andalite unite to save the planet? #4 in "The Animorphs" series. Recommended, especially for sci-fi fans. Reviewer: Judy Silverman
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6This addition to the popular sci-fi/fantasy series continues the adventures of five young people who have acquired the power to morph into animal forms from their alien friends, the Andalites. This power has helped them to survive and keeps the evil Yeerk invaders at bay. Then Cassie starts hearing strange and disturbing messages in her dreams and realizes that she is receiving a distress call from a stranded Andalite. With Jake's encouragement, she decides that they must try to rescue the alien before it is killed by the Yeerk's leader. Danger mounts as they enter the ocean as dolphins to start their search, and Cassie suddenly understands what it means to be a leader. She is truly afraid of being responsible for this mission and for her friends, and her struggles to come to terms with her decision are realistic and engaging. Though the five children are stock characters, and the conflict is thinly developed in parts (readers never hear what the message really imparts), the descriptions of becoming and living as dolphins and other animals are impressive, as is the group's knowledge that their special powers are in reality powerful weapons not to be used lightly. Average series fare.Linda Bindner, Athens Clarke County Library, GA
