|Animorphs Book #1|
I read this book called "The invasion." Its the 1st book in the Animorph series. In it, a kid named Jake and his friends, Rachel (his cousin), Marco (his best friend), Tobias (a kid who Jake saved from some bullies), and Cassie (Rachel's best friend). One day they met altogether and walked home. On the way they saw some thing in the sky fall. They checked it out. But when they saw an alien come out of the spaceship, they got totally freaked out. The alien claimed his name was Elfangor. He told them that some gray slugs called Yeerks go into a living things' body and take control of them. Humans who have Yeerks in them are called Human Controllers. He got out a blue box and told all 5 of the kids to touch each side of it. They all did. After that Elfangor told them that they now can turn into anything they touch. But they cannot stay in animal morph for more than 2 hours. Then Elfangor was eaten by a creature after the five kids hid. Will they be caught? Will they die saving people from Yeerks? Read this book to see what happens next.
