    One thought on “The Familiars”

    1. Maybe 2.5 stars Here s another older review from my LJ blog I m adding them to GR to keep track of them I wrote this one back in 2010.I think this book should have popularity, let me first say, at least among grade school kids, because of the spin of having a bunch of animals do the heroic questing and saving the world And a motley group of animals they are, too an alley cat, a blue jay, and a tree frog Still, it is terribly generic as a quest fantasy It is, for lack of a better word, cute I rea [...]

    2. The Familiars Read for Anna s ABCD bookclub Both Ron and I read this fantasy tale, about three familiars a tabby cat, a tree frog, and a blue jay, and their three young wizards in training The story centers around the familiar s journey to save their wizards Along the way they learn about each other, themselves and big secrets that affect the entire land of Vastia We both appreciated the map to help us follow them on their amazing journey Our combined average rating is 3.75, rounded up to 4 star [...]

    3. Entertaining enough for me to finish, but not an overly great read The characters seemed a little one dimensional brave feline, sly brainy jay and foolish frog sound a little familair It s like a furry Harry Potter I felt sorry for Gilbert, his entire presence in the plot seemed to be to bumble around, make an idiot of himself and get mocked by all and sundry ok, so he s a Neville than a Ron Plus there is no way you could disguise a frog as a chicken Why did the jay with her awesome powers of i [...]

    4. The thing I d like to ask about this book is at what age group is it being aimed Because I think the chapters may be a bit too long for many child readers But I will say it will probably keep the reader s interest most of the time There is constant activity with a simple, fully explained plot line So kudos to the author s for that I picked this book because I needed to read a book with a cat on the cover This was a pleasant surprise The familiars are very protective of their loyals and are quite [...]

    5. Here is the story of Aldwyn, the brave and resourceful ally cat who accidentally becomes a familiar to the young wizard Jack Jack and his older sister Marianne and their friend Dalton are being trained by a wise wizard and Marianne and Dalton have their own familiars, a good natured if sometimes bumbling frog named Gilbert and a wise and somewhat uppity bird named Skylar At first, Aldwyn relishes his time finally belonging to someone and learning about the wizarding world But when the children a [...]

    6. Hmmm I hate starting reviews I always have trouble on what to say I will say this HOLY FREAKING FAMILIAR BATMAT THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING.I know it took me awhile to read this book, but it was not from lack of interest It was merely because my work schedule and training kept my occupied Seriously i cannot emphasize how good this book was First thing first This book is directed towards the kid YA crowd The writing is simple and sometimes just silly at some points Some adults may not like its Seeing t [...]

    7. What is a Familiar The animal companion of a witch or wizard a companion with which the witch or wizard can speak with, a companion that will learn with you, fight with you, and protect you But, in this tale, the book is not from the perspective of the witch or wizard, but instead the perspective of the familiars, and one familiar in particular, a jovial alley cat named Aldwyn.I absolutely loved the early chapters of this book, especially the part where Aldwyn receives his first ever contact wit [...]

    8. Why I read this I thought The Familiars looked like a fun, middle grade fantasy and it s also a debut novel.Plot A Typical fantasy plot three human wizard apprentices are captured and the familiars must save them Definitely full of twists, as Aldwyn has to hide his secret of having no magical abilities Action packed with time to build relationships, The Familiars is a great middle grade fantasy that many kids and teens will get a kick out of.Characters I really loved Aldwyn He s an alley cat and [...]

    9. The Familiars is such a great, action packed, full of humor, quick, fun and engaging read I think this is one book that middle graders, and fans of good old magical adventures will enjoy reading With a loyal trio of unlikely heros, Aldwyn, Gregory and Skylar had me laughing out loud, and wishing I had pet companions like them The familiars are animal companions with magical abilities who become life long companions with a young human apprentice When Aldwyn, Gregory and Sklyar s Wizard apprentice [...]

    10. This is a book I would recommend It s fun and at times heart stopping I loved the main character, Aldwyn And the best part, in my opinion, is the character Gilbert He brings lots of light and humor to the storyline as the three friends face their first adventure together.

    11. Wow Letto Divorato in un pomeriggio, una cosa che non mi capitava da secoli La gioia di iniziare un libro, perdersi tra le sue pagine e finirlo prima di riuscire a realizzare che magari poi domani un po mi mancher , che sono una tonta a leggere un libro in modo cos famelico Certo, ha sicuramente aiutato la brevit del romanzo poco pi di 200 pagine e la presenza di alcune pagine con disegni Ma pur vero che la storia super carina e scorre velocissimaLo consiglio caldamente, soprattutto se avete vog [...]

    12. Ik heb een zoon van 5 jaar oud Doet dat er toe Natuurlijk wel Mijn zoon houdt van voorleesverhalen Ik hou ervan om hem voor te lezen.Mijn zoon houdt niet van veel plaatjes en korte verhalen.Hij is al helemaal mee met het idee dat verhalen spannend mogen zijn en boeken inhoud mogen hebben.Toevallig kwam ik bij Wonderdieren.Op basis van de flaptekst en cover was mij totaal niet duidelijk dat het een eerste deel uit een reeks was.Gelukkig heb ik dus eerst dit boek gevonden en niet een ander deel Vi [...]

    13. First off let me say I really enjoyed this book I think the authors demonstrated their passion for the genre and in my opinion created a very novel story.The story is set in the kingdom of Vastia, a mangy stray black and white cat missing a chunk of his left ear begins to feel his whisker s tingling On this day it means that Aldwyn is hungry and he goes in search of food to the nearest fish monger Unknowingly, he steps into a trap After stealing a fish, Aldwyn finds himself fleeing from Grimslad [...]

    14. Prendete 3 maghetti Aggiungete 3 animaletti speciali Cospargete il tutto con un pizzico di pericolo e di avventura Infine mescolate il tutto con un abbondante dose di magia Et voil , ecco a voi The Familiars Qualcuno potrebbe storcere il naso pensando che sia una copia del favoloso ed intramontabile Harry Potter , ma non assolutamente cos perch rullo di tamburi i protagonisti principali sono i tre animali Per l esattezza loro sono famigli , ovvero animali dotati di una particolare caratteristica [...]

    15. This is a perfectly woven tale that should appeal to everyone The story centers around three animal familiars who have magical capabilities think the triumvirate of Harry Potter and their human loyals Familiars have been in story telling as long as there have been witches and are creatures who bond with humans and assist them in casting spells Aldwyn, an alley cat on the run, hides in a magical pet store where he is quickly adopted by Jack and meets other familiars Gilbert the tree frog paging G [...]

    16. Okay so I m not a fan of books where animals speak and the story generally revolves around animals and no, I never read that Warrior series I used to love the movies centering around animals as a kid Hello, Homeward Bound and Beethoven , but outgrew them in my teenage years.Then The Familiars made it s way through the blogosphere well, I would say burst its way instead of made its way I m seeing this book everywhere My dislike of animal books kept me from outright buying it but now that I ve rea [...]

    17. The Familiars is such a great, action packed, full of humor, quick, fun and engaging read I think this is one book that middle graders, and fans of good old magical adventures will enjoy reading With a loyal trio of unlikely heros, Aldwyn, Gilbert and Skylar had me laughing out loud, and wishing I had pet companions like them The familiars are animal companions with magical abilities who become life long companions with a young human apprentice When Aldwyn, Gilbert and Sklyar s Wizard apprentice [...]

    18. Our 7.5 year old daughter read this one, and really liked it, so she encouraged me to read it too For an adult it s a very quick read, of course, but a fun one At first I was wondering if it was going to be too much of a Harry Potter pastiche, because the three familiars a cat, a bird, and a frog mimic the three friends The cat is Harry, the bird is Hermione, and the frog is Ron s comic relief But thankfully the story goes in a very different direction, and the animals have a great number of adv [...]

    19. I don t really like fantasy Fourth quarter of fourth grade each year I am suppose to teach this genre that I don t really like or understand I decided to try and read a fantasy middle reader book this year on spring break as I prepared for my unit on fantasy Since the authors of this book said that they would be kind enough to talk with my class about writing fantasy I felt that I should give their fantasy novel a tryI really liked it It was different The book didn t focus on wizards and the mag [...]

    20. Can t believe they are making this one into a film On second thought, the predictable plot and stock characters have sold tickets before, so why wouldn t they rip off the old, repackage it, and sell it to us again

    21. I reread this book, since it has been years since I last touched this series and the nostalgia warmed my heart I knew the gist of the novel still, but it was interesting to get back into it This novel is about a cat who is a no one until he finds out he s a familiar Familiars are pets that have magical powers and soon after the cat realizes this about him, he finds out about a prophecy where he is in the Circle of Three Those three are three familiars who are destined to protect the kingdom I re [...]

    22. This one kind of reminded me of the Warriors series, in a passing way Usually I don t do fantasy novels like these, with the exception of like Harry Potter, but I m kinda glad I did pick this one up It certainly has its good parts For a novel meant for younger people than I, I actually enjoyed it.

    23. Un romanzo con i personaggi pi bizzarri e coinvolgenti che io abbia letto da un po di tempo.The familiars il primo romanzo di una serie dove i protagonisti di questo romanzo fantasy non sono i maghi o le streghe, ma piuttosto i loro famigli, animali magici che accompagnano, aiutano gli umani nelle loro missioni.Ma cosa accadrebbe se un mago sceglie un animale privo di poteri magici Protagonista fin dall inizio della storia Aldwyn, un gatto randagio, senza padroni e fissa dimora, che vagabonda in [...]

    24. Read this aloud to my 6 year old It was full of adventures and great for her age Not much is original in terms of characters or plot, but my daughter didn t notice She was excited to get the next one immediately from the library.

    25. I loved The Familiars it was engaging, action packed, entertaining and a good middle grade novel The idea of familiars is original and interesting I m glad that animals finally have the spotlight rather than humans Human magic is always emphazized rather than the animals so points for this books because of that I m sick of seeing human wizards and witches in fantasy.Anyway, Aldwyn an alley cat who steals to survive winds up in a odd pet shop where he is chosen to be a young human apprentice, Jac [...]

    26. I have to review this for our meeting next weekThe back flap of the book says it all The Familiars combines the magic of Harry Potter and the adventure of the Warriors into an enchanting story young readers will love Michael Buckley, author of The Sisters Grimm and NERDS series.I think that young readers will love it, but not children above 5th grade The book will become an animated movie in 2012, and consequently parts of the book read like a movie script I know the movie will treat the action [...]

    27. I really had no idea what I would think of The Familiars I knew, however, that I was very eager to read it So eager, in fact that I abandoned another book I was reading just to read this one And boy, am I happy I did.One unique thing about this book was that the main characters are animals I know talking animals may seem weird at first, but once you get to know them as characters, you forget about their animal ness I knew I loved each of the familiars personalities and wanted each of them as a [...]

    28. 7 9 12 Another Young Hoosier Nominee for 2012 13 This will NOT feel like I m reading it just for my job Magic told from the animal familiar s point of view Narrator is a cat High fantasy And so far, not really a Harry Potter clone 7 11 12 I have to say that I m disappointed with this book In general, I am a fan of high fantasy, but this book leaves me wanting I d been starting think that I was unable to be critical of any book this summer I ve been on a string of 4 5 star ratings I think that m [...]

    29. thefamiliars The future has already been written My people just get a glimpse of it p 167.Fun Schlap p 324 action Surprises are some sharp shocks, some guessable Good guys can die view spoiler Kalstaff dies I didn t guess Vista was named for vast size until told Ancient cave drawings show animals creating history, not humans Aldwyn comes into his kinetic power at the life threatening end You familiars are the prophesized sic three p 360, not the humans hide spoiler What will humans Jack, Mariann [...]
