If your first thought upon looking at this picture is 'Where the hell did all the extra mass come from?', congratulations! You just might be a huge nerd. Don't worry, you're in good company here.

Hello and welcome to yet another thrilling episode of The Intergalactic Academy’s Animorphs Re-Read! (Or, as I like to call it, TIAARR.) Today we’ll be covering book #7: The Stranger, AKA ‘It’s a Wonderful Life: Animorphs Edition’. I mentioned last time that I had almost no memory of this one, but it turns out that […] More »
