Product description

Running for his life, Aldwyn, a streetwise 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 is to convince the other familiars that he’s the telekinetic cat he claims to be! But 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 and his new friends on their quest as they face dangerous foes, unearth a shocking ancient secret – and discover a mysterious destiny that will change them all!

“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”

“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”
