Summary[edit | edit source]
The book begins with an introduction to the theme and plot of the TV show, which is similar to the back story of the Animorphs book series. Jake, Rachel, Cassie, Marco and Tobias were once just normal kids who happened to come across an Andalite alien who gave them the power to morph into any animal they chose in order to fight the Yeerks, who were invading Earth. It took five amazing young actors to bring the roles of Jake, Rachel, Cassie, Tobias, and Marco to life: Shawn Ashmore, Brooke Nevin, Nadia Nascimento, Christopher Ralph, and Boris Cabrera.
