9780007371778: The Familiars: Animal Wizardry

The first magical adventure in a major new trilogy, Animal Wizardry, is a thrilling blend of edge-of-your-seat action, laugh-out-loud humour and unforgettable characters.

Running to save his life, Aldwyn, a streetwise orphan cat, ducks into a very strange pet shop… Moments later Jack, a young wizard-in-training, comes in to pick out his familiar - the magical animal that will accompany him forever. Aldwyn has always been clever. But magical? Apparently Jack thinks so - and Aldwyn is happy to play along. Anything to get out of town…

Back at wizard training camp Aldywn really thinks he’s landed on his feet! All he needs to figure out is how to convince the other familiars - the know-it-all blue jay Skylar and the friendly tree frog Gilbert - that he’s the telekinetic cat he claims to be!

Then something terrible happens - Jack and the other young wizards are captured by the evil queen of Vastia. Together their familiars must save them - but how? Join Aldwyn, Skylar and Gilbert on their quest across the land as they face dangerous foes, unearth a shocking ancient secret and discover a mysterious destiny that will change them all forever.

Review:

"A captivating story that puts a fresh spin on the classic fantasy tale by telling it from the animals' point of view. Prepare yourself for more twists and turns than you can shake a wand at, and cliff-hangers by the dozen!" Roderick Gordon, author of Tunnels

"The Familiars combines the magic of Harry Potter and the adventure of Warriors into an enchanting story readers will love. Whether furry, flippered or feathered you'll be taking a closer look at your family pet." Michael Buckley, author of The Sisters Grimm and NERDS

About the Author:

Adam Jay Epstein spent his childhood in Great Neck, New York, while Andrew Jacobson grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but the two met in a parking garage out in Los Angeles. They have been writing for film and television together ever since. This is their first book.

One day, Adam asked Andrew, "Are you familiar with what a familiar is?" And from that simple question, Vastia was born, a fantastical world filled with the authors' shared love of animals and magic. They wrote every word, sentence, and page together, sitting opposite each other.

Adam Jay Epstein lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Jane, their daughter, Penny, and a black-and-white alley cat who hangs out in their backyard.

Andrew Jacobson lives with his wife, Ashley, and their dog, Elvis, four traffic lights away.
