The Fifth Grade Review Club Presents: THE FAMILIARS by Adam Jay Epstein and Andrew Jacobson

The_Familiars_coverReviewed by Ava and Rida

Do you like books that have magic and adventure in them? Well, if you do them you should really read the Familiars by Adam Jay Epstein and Andrew Jacobson. This book is very original because I mean, who would have thought of animals with special powers or flying and floating eyeballs? The authors used very descriptive language and after I finished reading I could see Aldwyn running from Grimslade right in front of me! This story was very magical.


I think the book was suspenseful, surprising, predictable and original. It’s original because I’ve never read or heard of a book about magical animals that have special powers….My Favorite character is Aldwyn, he is clever, courageous, smart, humorous and much more. The main “problem” of the story is that Aldwyn does not have magical powers. He lies to his friends about having magic powers. Now his friends are asking him to use the powers that he really does not have. Will he tell them the truth? If he does what will happen?

The fourth book in the series is released next week — become a fan!
