#2: The Visitor was the book that got me reading it, the picture of Rachel turning into a cat was really striking to me because I love cats.

Book one: The Invasion.

I can't stand starting series out of order, good or bad I must read them in order, start to finish.

And the sheer amount of dread, excitement, terror, and the unknown that is introduced with the Yeerks, the andalites, Visser 3, The ability to morph and this daunting impossible idea of 5 kids against an entire invading species where your best friend could be your enemy and you would never know. I was hooked from the moment they first crossed the construction site.

I believe I read book one first. I got it from the library long ago. I recently was in need of a quick book to read while I wait for a ebook I had on hold to be released. When raking my brain I remembered these books and realized I never finished them. Now I'm on the animorph journey once again.

The first one itself, I remember a older student reading the book on our school bus and I thought that the cover was crazy. Went to my school library, and couldn't stop reading it since!

I can't exactly remember which exact book it was as i found Animorphs at my local library as a lad, there were5 books I took home with me, #'s 5,6,8,11,13 and by the time I had finished them off I was hooked, completely.

I found it in a library when I was 8 and ever since then I've been trying to find the rest so I could finish it.

I was hooked from Book 1. The moment I saw the cover in Waldenbooks i was intrigued, and after reading the synopsis I decided I was sticking with the series to the end. I bought every book as it came out.

I started with book 3. My attention was called by the cover bearing Tobias morphing to hawk. For some reason avian illustrations call my attention. Got to read and I was hooked since.

I started with I think the Hork-Bajir Chronicles, but I'm not sure. My elementary school's library was pretty understocked when I was younger, but this one actually drove me to search out the other books! I still haven't had a chance to read them all, but Hork-Bajir and Ellimist are definitely my two favourites.
