Minus the totally misleading title of this novel. I thought this a good follow up to the first Animorphs book. Obviously this series is reminiscent of so many others and yet has some unique aspects. The pacing is great and the action flows. Not a lot of story as these are very short books. But this series would really appeal to preteen early teen ages and might get that reluctant boy in your life reading. Being a mix of boys and girls I feel that there would be appeal for both, but feel these are far more pointed to boys. If you’re looking for a quick fun read, you should try this series.
