Book 29: The Sickness

Book 29: The Sickness: 1st, Ax gets sick with yamphut, which will kill him within days by exploding his Tria gland, which is in his head! (pp 29-32).

P 53: Jake keels over, while passing through the town's water system!

P 63: Rachael says that Ax says that the yumphut is very contagious, and will sicken all the Animorphs (which it soon does, save Cassie!). Given that yamphut is vary contagious, why doesn't it spread all over town, (from Ax infecting people at a school dance party when he first gets sick, and from Jake's illness infecting THE WATER!

Also Jake, Rachael, and Marco infecting their friends and family)? I was imagining the yamphut epidemic spreading through the Yeek Pool!

<An interesting idea, and one that may well have happened within the Animorph's universe, however people would have just though that it was a standard flu bug that Humans get every year or so.>
<One thing to remember is that the biggest difference between the cold or flu and this particular illness, is the out of control morphing. Nobody else on the planet, except Visser 3, and ONE OTHER ANDALITE has the power to morph.>
<If you don't know what one other Andalite I am talking about then you need to read #40, The Other.>
