The Invasion (Animorphs Graphix #1)
This is a graphic novel based on the original Animorphs series. While walking home from the mall, five friends cut through a construction site and encounter an alien ship. The alien gives the friends the power to morph into animals at will, so long as they have touched the animal to absorb its DNA.
In addition to their new powers, the alien shares information with the friends that changes their lives and gives them a mission: to defeat the yeerks, a parasitic alien race that takes over human minds. Their best chance of defeating the yeerks is to find them in yeerk pools, where they go to absorb minerals they would get on their home planet. In order to soak themselves, they have to leave their hosts, which leaves them vulnerable to attack.
I liked this book because the story was very entertaining. This fast-paced story kept me turning the pages! Although it was easy to read, the story and pictures kept me engaged until the final page! This introduction to the world of the Animorphs makes me want to put the original series on my reading list!
