Scholastic to Re-Launch Animorphs Books by Bestselling Author K.A. Applegate

Scholastic, the global children's publishing, education and media company, announced today that it will re-launch K.A. Applegate's bestselling "Animorphs" series in May 2011. Each book will be published with a lenticular cover that actually morphs.

Since the first Animorphs book was published in June 1996, the brand has grown to include 54 books, two spin-off series and ten companion books -- totaling more than 35 million books in print worldwide. In addition, the Scholastic Media-produced television series was sold to 35 countries globally and aired on Nickelodeon in the United States. The Animorphs series empowers kids with the desire, skills and supernatural abilities to achieve such noble virtues as heroism, loyalty and respect for nature's creatures -- all while engulfed in an urgent quest to save the world from evil.

K.A. Applegate is the author of the bestselling Animorphs series, as well as the Remnants and Everworld series, Home of The Brave, and the Roscoe Riley Rules series. She lives in Southern California.
