The claim that Animorphs is a series for children doesn't sit well with me. Nothing I've ever read has given me nightmares quite so frequent and vivid as this series. I certainly wouldn't let a sensitive child read these books. I read them all, and enjoyed most of them. Several of my adult friends have read them as well. It is a gripping series. But if you plan on ordering some for your kids, make sure you take a look. You might find that they are something you can enjoy with your children, or you might find that your child would be better off not reading them at all. You know your kids; I don't, and K.A. Applegate certainly doesn't.
