When Aldwyn, a young alley cat on the run, ducks into a mysterious pet shop, he doesn’t expect his life to change. But that’s exactly what happens when Jack, a young wizard, picks Aldwyn to be his magical familiar.
Finally off the tough streets, Aldwyn thinks he’s got it made. He just has 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. But when Jack and two other wizards in training are captured by a terrible evil, it will take all of Aldwyn’s street smarts, a few good friends, and a nose for adventure to save the day!
When young alley cat Aldwyn gets chased into a pet shop by a mysterious exterminator named Grimslade, he finds himself picked as the "familiar" of a wizard in-training, named Jack. Then, when the queen of the land turns evil, Jack and two other wizards disappear. Aldwyn, along with the know it-all female blue jay named Skylar, and the ever-hungry male tree frog Gilbert, trek across spooky forests, cursed mountaintops, and down stairs where seven-headed dragons serve as watchdogs, they find the captured wizards. But they all soon find out that another familiar is the source of evil...

'Us how' asked Aldwyn in disbelief.'We're just a bunch of familiars' added Gilbert.Even Skylar had a look of uncertainty on her face.'I see the worry on your faces but fear not Heroism appears in many forms said Kalstaff.Not always man or women but also fur feather and tongue'.
