Cassie, the other Animorphs, and Ax have a few little problems. A few very little problems. Actually, the problems call themselves Helmacrons. They're less than an inch tall, and they're pretty upset at Cassie. They believe she stole their ship. Cassie thought it was just a toy, and gave it to charity. Now the Helmacrons want it back.

So the Animorphs and Ax have a new dilemma. Because the Helmacrons have their own secret weapon: They can shrink other beings down to their size. And, if they don't get their ship back soon, everyone on the planet is in for a little surprise . . .

The roof closed behind it. And at that moment a long, black limousine came tearing into the parking lot. "Very clever," Marco said admiringly. "It's an empty building," I told the Helmacron.

I felt like a parachutist in free fall, spinning and falling, spinning and falling toward the ground. Only instead of a square

box in his two weak Andalite hands. One of his fingers was pressing down on me, so I began to demorph to release the pressure. Tobias crawled back and grabbed me as I shrank far enough to unwedge myself. He pulled me up to sit on his knee like a toddler. Marco was on his other knee. Tobias was leaning back against one of Ax's fingers. I saw the tops of a row of pinball eyes go marching past, just beyond the finger. "The Helmacrons!" I hissed, now human again. "They're bailing!"

From the two Helmacron ships came a pale, greenish beam different from the weapons. It came from the bottom of each ship as they hovered directly above the box. The blue box moved. Ax yelled.
