The Change has probably been my favourite book of the series so far. It's the first story entirely narrated by Tobias since The Encounter and emphasises what a strong character he is. Tobias has suffered greatly, losing far more to the war than any of the others.

While I find the Marco stories to be more fun to read, Tobias certainly has the most heart. He lives a life of constant conflict - his human side versus the hawk - and when he's finally offered a chance at normality it causes him a moral dilemma. Does he become a human and be forced to sit out while his friends put themselves in danger or does he remain a hawk and never enjoy human comforts again?

The story itself is a good counterpoint for The Stranger. In that story, the Ellimist offered the Animorphs a chance to leave the war and become a human colony on a different world. In this book, Tobias offers the same thing to two escaped Hork-Bajir. While the Animorphs are initially reluctant to trust the aliens, they soon decide that they must help find them a place where they can be free as no creature deserves to be a slave to another.

This novel is the first to really focus on the Hork-Bajir. Previously, they've only ever been really portrayed as soldiers for the Yeerks yet this book shows them in a completely different life - a peaceful race of herbivores who have been entirely enslaved due to the fact that they make good weapons. The characters of Jara Hamee and Ket Halpak are both very lovable and I look forward to seeing the role they play in future books.

All in all, this book was just fantastic. It really shows how Applegate is capable of writing a strong and emotional story, while still making it utterly suitable for middle graders.

I really enjoyed this one, and as Tobias is my favourite character it was especially pleasing to see that he got his morphing power back. I think that the Ellimist could have been a little more kind and if you have no idea what I am talking about read #7 before this one (i didn't and couldn't understand it). I recomend this to anyone and I think this is my favorite so far.
TOBIAS ROCKZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tobias Rules. Cute,constantly dreaming eyes, wild blonde hair. Like dyehard gorgess!!! Also this book rocks!!! Finally, Finally , Finally the great almighty Tobias talks again. Though it has a sad ending. For those of you that read that the artists arn't going to morph Tobias from human again it's wrong. His spirt's in the back growned. He won't be narrating again till 23# so injoy!

This is my second favourite Animorph (after number 11). The good thing is that Tobias finally gets his morphing power back from the Ellimist. He gets all cross with the Ellimist at first until the Ellimist lets him acquire himself, his old human self, not the hawk. The Ellimist is an alien who is mentioned in number 7. I really recommend this book.

A very cool book, where Tobias sees two Hork-bajir warriors fleeing from the yeerks. Two FREE Hork-bajir. Now the animorphs have to protect the couple, so that the race might have a second chance...

This book rules. Tobias gets to be human. Well, he morphed a human because of the Ellimist. It was also a great book because two Hork-Bajir escape from the Yeerks. That's why I liked this book.

This book is great because Tobias finally gets his morphing power back, even though he wanted to be human again.But he finally gets to be involved with the adventures, the way he wanted.
