It took a while, but it’s finally here! We are talking, of course, about Rachel’s iconic bear morph. In this episode of Centipedes and Slugs, Maddie and Lydia discuss the always-confusing mechanics of morphing and the always-annoying powers of The Ellimist. Prepare to learn a little bit about K.A. Applegate’s misunderstanding of bears (not carnivorous, not nearsighted) and the ways in which the Animorphs do (and do not) resemble real-life child soldiers. Spoilers for all of Animorphs.
