Here is some surprising news, the official age of Rachel which
K.A. even wrote in her own book!! The book is Megamorphs #3 Elfangor's
Secret, here are the clues: on page 43, a guy says the Animorphs are in the
year 1415. Then on page 61, Rachel says she is going to die 600 years before
she was even born! Now you have to do some math here, (I'll give my sister
the credit, she did it), here is what you have to do: you subtract 1999
(current year) - 1415 (year they are in) that equals = 584. Now take 584 and
subtract 600, that equals = 16, and THAT is how old Rachel is!!
Could the cover morph for #39 that is something similar to a wolf be a coyote? And look what I noticed, books 11, 21 and 31 all have the same model who is wearing the same over shirt! One other thing I noticed, #30 and #31 both have an appropriate theme. #30 came out in May, the month of mother's day and in the book, Marco meets his mom. #31 came out in June, the month of father's day and in the book Jake has to save his dad!
A look at the Animorphs Student Planner for 1999-2000, (info thanks to Morphz):
Here is the front cover
And the back cover
The front cover, has some type of rainbow-hologram foil over it. The back cover is the same, minus the foil, and is printed with lighter ink. And at the bottom, there's a little picture of the Animorphs gang from the cover from MM3 and a message.
The inside contents: here's a pic of a sample page spread for the daily organizer section:
Pic 1 (Also the inside cover for #32!!)
The way the book is set up is so that on the left-hand side of the pages of the section, there is the inside cover of a book. On the right is the schedule, and small pictures of the cover morph, each in an individual stage of the morph. There's also a few other sections: Class Schedule, Homework and Assignments, Notes, Friends and Addresses, Birthdays and Special Days to Remember, a two-year Calendar, and a page that's themed with each of the Animorphs (i.e. a Crush Stuff page for Marco, and a Bird's-Eye View page for Tobias). The planner is out now and costs $9.99.
Here are some sample chapters (thanks to Morphz) for #32 The Separation, and #33 The Illusion
Extra news on the 2000 calendar, it should include pics of the Animorphs, the morphs, Yeerks, and other aliens and even David! The calendar will have special effects throughout, to create moving done by David Mattingly and includes a poster! The release date is August 31, 1999 which means that the morph pictures will be from books #21-#33 The Illusion!

I know what this sickness does! Ax has decided to try another human custom and when someone mentions a dance he decides to go. Then right in the middle of a dance his stalk eyes start coming out of his head. Without him wanting to. Sorta like The Reaction. I guess this gets progressively worse and starts to kill Ax. You should know the rest. This cover book info is thanks to Ziana Astralo's Animorphs Galaxy, I don't know if it is official or not, Ziana says, "Everything is CONFIRMED by SCHOLASTIC!"
