The Familiars by Adam Jay Epstein
After three young wizard apprentices are kidnapped by the evil queen of a distant land, it is up to their familiars, their magical animal companions -- a street smart alley cat, a precocious blue jay, and a bumbling tree frog -- to save them.

I work with kids. I love working with kids. Kids read kid level books. I read kid level books. I LOVE younger kid level books! Especially when they deal with magic and animals! I make it a point to read at least 4 or 5 younger grade novels a year so that I can share them with my students. When I saw this particular book I knew that I would just have to read it when it comes out! It looks and sounds fantastic!
