The Invasion by K.A. Applegate and Michael Grant - ESSENTIAL

The Invasion (Animorphs Graphix #1) by K.A. Applegate and Michael Grant, adapted by Chris Grine, 240 pages. GRAPHIC NOVEL. Scholastic, 2020. $13. 9781338538090

Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content PG; Violence: PG



The Animorphs begin their adventures in this graphic novel adaption.  Five teens are on their way home through a construction site when they meet up with a wounded alien who gives them morphing powers before dying.  He wants to keep them safe from bigger badder invading aliens who want to use humans for hosts for their race. 

Whether or not you have read the Animorph series, you will probably enjoy the graphic novel version.  It’s a great way to be introduced to the series, and an awesome visual if you are already a fan.  Each of the teen’s personalities are brought forth, as well as the creepiness of the aliens they face.  I’m betting you won’t be able to stop at just book one.
