Posted by: Beth F. Subject: Killing Visser Three
Good afternoon K.A. Applegate. My name is Nate. I am a third grade student at Johnson School in Davenport, Iowa. I have some questions for you. When are they going to kill Visser Three? When are they going to get Marco's mom back? Also are they going to rescue Tom?

I guess I hope Visser Three won't have to be killed.

Posted by: animorphaholic Subject: answer these questions or I'll diss Rachel's hair
here are my questions. 1. what happens in book 15? 2.16? 3.17!?!? 4. Hork-bajir Chronicles? 5.is the rumor about the visser chronicles true? 6.if leerans are from leera, does that mean andalites are from anda, Yeeks from Yeer, Hork-Bajir from Hork-ba, and Taxxon from tax? 7. was no. 6 a stupid question? ( thought so ) lastly, I've got this idea where the animorphs discover this kid from out of state who, on the internet, spreads the word that he knows where the animorphs live. both the animorphs and the yeerks realize that they need to get to him before the other does. so, the animorphs find some way to travel, find him, and then.......... well....... it's your book, you make up the rest. P.S. use my idea or I'll STILL diss rachel's hair!!!!!!!!

.I really enjoy your books. Especially the Andalite Chronicles. When I finished the Alien Dies, I had a tear in my eye. I figured if you could touch people with The Andalite Chronicles, then maybe you could do the same by writing more Alien chronicles. Here are some of my ideas.

Well, there is some thought of a Visser Chronicles.

Posted by: The Ellimist Subject: Re: Re: Please read and reply, (if you have time)
I think that you should do more chronicles books. They are full with all sorts of different words in intergalactic languages! I have memorized all of the Andalite words in #8, The Alien (shorm, nothlit, aristh, and estreen) and all of the Hork-Bajir words in #13, The Change (darkap, fellana, Hruthin, kawatnoj, the hork-bajir trees: Kanver, Lewhawk, and the Fit Fit. I'm probably forgetting a few.) I love the books! Especially irrelevant info no one else knows so that I can quiz people in chatrooms and they have no clue what the answers are!!!!!
We luv you!

Posted by: Collin H Subject: Animorph Movies
Have you ever thought of making Animorph movies or a series like Goosebumps (FOX),Baby-sitters club (Disney Channel) ,and The Magic School Bus (YTV). I hope you do because you say you want to make the readers see what it's like being the morphed animal it would probably be more effective actually seeing the animal. Also the creatures (Visser Three, Hork Bajir etc.) would seem more realistic.

Posted by: Mom of Anafanatic Subject: Are Moms Allowed to Write?
Just wanted to say thank you for providing my obsessive daughter with something worthy of her obsession. Since she talks of very little except your books and related on-line activities, I finally read one or two of your books (okay, seven, so far). What a delight! I will never again be able to watch a dolphin frolick or a dog chase a rabbit without sharing the animal's every thought and joy. (Yikes! does that make me a Yeerk?) I could go on for pages about your work, but I'll skip straight to the point. I realize that you would never dream of selling an autographed book or other K.A. collectible. But would you send a very special Christmas gift to a very special fan in recognition of a $150 donation to the Barnes & Noble Christmas Tree program? I sincerely hope that didn't sound like a bribe, because we've already donated a couple of your four-book sets to the program and will probably donate more whether we hear from you or not. But this 46-year-old mother (yes, I know we're the same age) would have a very happy child on Christmas morning if you wrote back: I'll do this once, but don't anyone else ask!" If you were to agree, you could send the autographed book or any other little personal thing to Connie B. (the Mom) care of Barnes & Noble in Rockford, Il.. Either way, keep up the excellent work. Thanks!

5. In answer to your questions, I am not, and never will get tired of any characters. I think that it is each individual that makes up the whole team.

Posted by: Mike S Subject: I am a Gedd Head (They do rhyme, am I correct?
You probably won't get to these questions about my favorite alien species, because it was I who asked about those new alien chronicles, (that long one, but I have a few Gedd questions. If you can't answer them, I'll make up my own answer. Will the Animorphs ever find a need to morph Gedds? How is "Gedd" pronouced? With a "G" or a "J?" You said the Gedds were native to the Yeerk homeworld. (Makes sense.) True or not? What color are they? Thanks a bunch!
Posted by: K. A. Applegate Subject: Re: I am a Gedd Head (They do rhyme, am I correct?
Ah, finally, someone who likes the lowly Gedds.

How did you get a publisher to publish your books? What was his or her name? BR>
Posted by: K. A. Applegate Subject: Re: animorphs
Basically what you do is send your idea to a publisher and they decide whether they'll publish it. In the case of Animorphs I sent what we call a "series bible." It was in a loose-leaf binder and included some outlines, some descriptions of the characters, sample chapters, descriptions of the aliens and so. I sent this, along with a letter, to Scholastic, and they agreed to publish it. --KAA

Hi. Sorry I can't send you a book, or I'd end up having to send out thousands. Is it possible that your local library has Animorphs books? Or maybe you could borrow from a friend. I do sympathize. I was broke for lots and lots of years. By the way, you should never put your phone number out over the web. Okay? --KAA

Dear kathren, I love your books i own all of them. I call Powles every day. I thin that www.scholastic.com/animorphs should be updated evry 1st of every month that way you will know what day to lok at it, I also think that you need millisa chapman find out how the animorphs are and ax should give her the power to morph. and I think you should get at least one other person.I have an idea about a book. I think some andilites should fallow a yeerk ship to earth and crash in Oregon get some mixed human morphs get jobs and trak down ax then help him,and the animorphs fight and free some controlers....like tom. your #1 fannnn dustin

Posted by: Trudy S Subject: Dinomorphs
Dear K.A. Applegate: I think that somehow the animorphs should find the time matrix in the construction site but misuse it and go back in time and acquire dinosaurs, water dinosaurs and air dinosaurs and in another book maybe they should learn how to combine morphs. Maybe they can learn how to undo morphs, even after 2 hours. The ellimists might take part in this books, too. Maybe you should have a book with an ellimist on the cover and showing things from his point of view. I love your books and would love to read more. Keep writing!! Your fan, Don (Marco)

Dear K. A. Applegate, In book 2 and other books it says that they can't talk to Tobias while walking or whatever because he couldn't hear them. But they are always talking about how amazing hawk hearing is, and in The Secret Tobias heard Cassie and Jake's conversation even though he was far away and it even said that hawk hearing was really good! So why do they say that he can't participate in conversations because he can't hear? Please Reply!

I know that in 23 Tobias finds out about Elfangor being his dad, and they find the blue box in 20,21,or 22. Plus, I know A new Animorph(a human) comes in 20,21, or 22. Please tell me about the books.
