Body horror, anti-imperialism, and cinnamon buns—what more could you want? Let's talk about Animorphs, a foundational middle-grade series best known for traumatizing a generation of readers and being the butt of every joke about bad cover design. What exactly makes the series so special? Is this just all silly children's fare? And why were we all allowed to read this series without any oversight?

Warning: Contains swearing and discussions of suicidal ideation.
