The Familiars by Adam Jay Epstein & Andrew Jacobson, 360 pages, read by Leslie, on 08/12/2012

The Familiars (The Familiars, #1)

When a scrappy alley cat named Aldwyn passes himself off as a magical animal companion to Jack, a young wizard in training, Aldwyn and his fellow “familiars,” a know-it-all blue jay and bumbling tree frog, must save the kingdom after the evil queen of Vastia kidnaps Jack and two other wizards.

Very appealing to the kids at school, I found it to be okay.  I am not enjoying talking animal books much lately, I don’t know if there are too many of them or they just seem to be carbon copies of each other. Not one I would have picked for myself, but reading for the Twains gives you lots to read.
