The Familiars by Adam Jay Eptstein and Andrew Jacobson
by Adam Jay Epstein & Andrew Jacobson
The Familiars by Adam Jay Epstein & Andrew Jacobson was a great book!
It is about an orphaned alley cat named Aldwyn who is chased by an exterminator into a magical pet shop. A few minutes later a young wizard-in-training named Jack walks in to pick out a familiar. At first Aldwyn thinks he’s just an ordinary cat and tries to fake magical powers.When Jack sees Aldwyn he reaches into his cage and touches him on the nose and suddenly they both have an odd feeling.
Jack took Aldwyn home and the cat enjoys the life of luxury with Jack, his sister Marianne, their friend Dalton, and their Familiars, Gilbet a tree frog and Skylar a know-it-all blue jay. He enjoyed not having to fight for every meal.
But two days later that all changes when three shooting stars flew over the stone runlet the wizards and familiars called home. I would recommend this book for ages 6+, boys and girls alike.
This book is sure to change the way you look at magic!
