           WEEK OF MARCH 11, 2001

                   <HI EVERYONE!>
The March Break begins tomorrow, NO SCHOOL!!! Two other big things 
start tomorrow (find out in News)! This past week I FINALLY got #51, 
my mom bought it for me as a huge surprise! When I saw the book, I 
screamed and jumped! The cover looked so beautiful, "Only three more 
until the end." I loved it! Expect a review of #51 next week! And 
TODAY, my sister surprised me by giving me #52! My bookstores had 
BOTH books! Anyway, voting for Nick's Kids Choice Awards start 
tomorrow, voting for ANOTHER awards show starts in two weeks!! Now, 
on with this weeks newsletter!

&&&&&&&&&
 AW FORUM
&&&&&&&&&
Last week's forum: do you think Everworld caused K.A. to use 
ghostwriters for Animorphs? Why or why not? 
Only two responses, that's sad, thanks to Andrew and Tyler who sent 
theirs in.

"I think it definately caused her to ghostwrite, but that's ok 
because I really like Everworld, so I'm glad she got that along with 
Animorphs. But I won't read Remnants, cause it sounds dumb!"
- Andrew

"No, I don't think Everworld was the total reason for ghostwriters. 
Maybe it played a PART, but not totally. I think KA just got kinda 
bored of the series. It may not seem possible, but seems highly 
probable to me. I mean, since the ghostwriters, has KA even seemed 
like she's THERE anymore? To me, I fell like she disappeared.... oh 
well... did that answer the question...? Umm....probally not..."
- Tyler

This week's forum question is: Do you think Remnants will have the 
success Animorphs did? Will it get a TV show? Why or why not

Last week's poll question was: would have bought Animorphs food (like 
Spagettis-Os) if there was such thing?

No way     4
Maybe     1
Sure     3

This week's poll question is: what was the more shocking news item, 
K.A. stops writing not only Animorphs but Everworld as well OR K.A.'s 
new series, Remnants?

-- XTREME AND NOT TOBIAS' LAST NAME
Last week I had a suspicion that 'I' was the intial of the Tobias' 
last name because the intials "T.I." were found on the Official Site. 
Well this past week, we have found out that that is not the initial 
of Tobias' last name. I also got three emails describing the 
initials. It turns out "T.I." stands for The Informer, who is 
an "outsider" and the head person of the Official Site's new 
addition, Animorphs Xtreme. This new site is basically full of 
spoilers for the most recent books and just talks about how the 
Yeerks are actually real and winning the war (whatever!). You can 
find Animorphs Xtreme here (but beware of extreme spoilers for books 
#45 and above): http://www.scholastic.com/animorphs/xtreme/

-- OFFICIAL #52 STUFF
Along with Animorphs Xtreme, the Official Site also updated with #52 
The Sacrifice summary and cover! Here's the official back-of-book 
summary:

The war between the Yeerks and the Animorphs is still raging. There 
are no more secrets - but there are plenty of lies. The kids are 
fighting harder than they ever thought they could. And they're about 
to make the biggest decision they've ever had to face. A decision 
that may eventually break them all. 
Ax and the Animorphs have known that the ultimate destruction of the 
Yeerk pool will give them a huge chance to take back Earth. And 
they've figured out a way to do it. But there's no way to destroy the 
pool without destroying everyone else that may be there. And there's 
no more time to think about it. There's only yes or no...

and you can find the huge cover here:

-- OFFICIAL #54 SUMMARY
What more can I say, the summary for the last book has been released! 
I won't post it here though, you'll have to click on the link to go 
to it. I haven't read it myself, so I don't know what it says!: 
http://www.booksamillion.com/ncom/books?
id=9843351318579&pid=0439115280

And there's more to report on the book, B&N says the book will have 
176 pages. Also, Amazon posts that the final book will have 185 
pages. Now I don't know which one is the REAL page number (maybe 
neither of them), but the actual one could be very close to those two 
(and that would be really awesome!)!

-- VOTE FOR ANIMORPHS!
As I said in the intro to the newsletter, voting for Nickelodeon's 
2001 Kids Choice Awards begins tomorrow and Animorphs is nominated 
for Best Book! We have to make Animorphs win, since it won't be 
nominated next year as the series is ending. You can vote on the net 
here: http://nick.com/all_nick/specials/kca_2001/kca_index.jhtml
Voting will go until March 26 and the awards will air on April 21 on 
Nick!
