How to Survive Your Magical Family

Toby’s family is no ordinary family.

They are magical, talented, and special.

His father is a surgeon at the hospital. His older sister is a lawyer. But his dad is also a renowned wizard. So is his uncle, and his sister can influence people. Toby’s mum was special too, but she had to leave…

Toby isn’t any of those things. The only special thing he can do is pretty useless. Toby can talk with cats.

When Toby and his sister rescue a family of abandoned cats on the side of the road and Toby spots a silver bangle in the gutter, everything changes.

Mia is Toby’s best friend. She’s not magical either – she doesn’t even know magic exists! But when she sees Toby get on the wrong school bus and a ferocious bus driver screams away with him on board, Mia’s world is about to change too.

How to Survive Your Magical Family is an exciting adventure filled with mystery, cats, friendship, and of course, magic!
