Twelve-year-old Simon Thorn's life has never been normal--especially since he's been keeping a big secret: he can talk to animals.

But when his mom is suddenly kidnapped by a herd of New York City rats, Simon finds out that he, his mom, and his uncle are all Animalgams--someone born with the ability to change into an animal at will--and suddenly talking to animals doesn't seem so crazy after all.

In search of his mom, Simon discovers that Animalgams belong to an ancient world made up of Five Animal Kingdoms (Mammals, Birds, Insects, Reptiles, and Underwater) which are now under attack . . . and Simon just may be the only one who can save them all.

Imaginative and vivid with themes of bravery, loyalty, and finding one's true self, this exciting, five-book adventure series is perfect for fans of the Spirit Animals and The School of Good and Evil series.

A 2018-2019 Missouri Truman Readers Award preliminary nominee (grades 6-8).

Simon Thorn is just your average New York City school kid until one day his family is besieged by birds and rodents. His mother is abducted and he get separated from his uncle trying to escape. Simon discovers that in his family they can shapeshift into animals, and so begins Simon's adventure.

This wasn't bad. It has a similar feel to Rick Riordan's series and Spirit Animals. Fantasy/adventure.

Is a great read for those who liked Percy Jackson! Lots of different twists that keep your mind going through the entire story. Can't wait for book 2!
