Animorphs Returning

Yea!!!!! Scholastic announces they are re-launching the Animorphs series by K.A. Applegate in May.

In the series, five kids are given the power to morph into animal forms by alien beings. Applegate’s gift was to take have these stock series characters fight evil while vividly capturing each animal’s attributes (what kid, or adult for that matter, wouldn’t want to fly like a condor or swim like a dolphin?)

In my library, the copies are old, yellowed and ratty (they were published between 1996 and 2001). I would have tossed them years ago if our kids weren’t still taking them out.

    Hurray! These are hugely popular in all of the libraries I’ve worked in.

    Are there going to be new titles written? Or are they just re-publishing the original series? It’s not clear from the Animorphs page at Scholastic (or not clear to me).
