We've been traveling around the country visiting schools and at each one the students have created their own Familiar Story.

Kidlit Book Feud

Hatfields-McCoys. Yankees-Red Sox. Lauren Conrad-Spencer Pratt.

Blood feuds. Sports Feuds. Celebrity Feuds.

And now, the first ever kidlit book feud! The Familiars has called out Hilary Wagner's Nightshade City, coming in October. According to Rick Riordin, “Fans of Redwall and the Warriors series will love this heroic tale of good versus evil in a subterranean society of rats."

Well, I got news for you, rats of Nightshade City. The Familiars are coming for you. It's magical, spellcasting animal companions vs cheese-eating, dumpster-diving, disease-spreading rodents. We're throwing down the gauntlet. It's on!

Fantasy animal adventure series will have to make room on the bookshelves for two more titles.

What's your favorite animal book series?

  1. It's so ON Familiars! Thanks for talking so nicely about Nightshade City, as well as giving my rats such a hard time! Slightly passive aggressive, but I like it! Ha, ha!

    I'll be posting about you soon, buckos!
