The new models for the rerelease of the books have been revealed and it's causing something of a stir within the Animorphs community. In the books, Marco is explicitly described as being half-Hispanic, with darker skin and hair. The model chosen however, is white. Nezumi9 asked us to pass on the message and to tell our members about a petition to change it. Her original message is below.
"As you probably know, the new cover models for the re-release have just been posted www.scholastic.com/animorphs/c… and we on the LJ Animorphs community think that the Marco model doesn't fit his character's description at all. I've created a petition to change it www.ipetitions.com/petition/ma… and I was wondering if you could post a blog entry about it? Any signatures are really appreciated and I'd love your help. ^_^"
