I agree with both of you. This book is like a the key to a gateway of magic, adventure, and imagination. When I read it I could not put it down. I just feel like I want to pick it up and jump right into the book.

This book can extend your imagination to it's limits. It a guide to a fictional wizarding school that is quite the school. It is kind of like the Harry Potter plot but adds some twists to it like the dormitorys. WOW. I wish I could sleep like that. But anyway, this book is interesting and it gives your imagination the stretch that it needs. I rate this book full stars!

Aldwyns is full of exciting, magical, wonders,. But nothing is as wonder as your familiar. A familiar is an animal who will stick by your side to the very end. Facing all the same fears and anxieties as you do, to the mundane to the magical. But this isn't just a pet, this magical creature is summoned using magic at your first year at the festival of choosing. Over time you and your familiar will begin to share the same interests and small quirks in appearance. But don't worry about a familiar passing away while your on the watch. A familiar will always be by your side, even to death.
