#1 New York Times bestseller Brandon Mull launches Scholastic's brand-new multiplatform phenomenon.

Four children separated by vast distances all undergo the same ritual, watched by cloaked strangers. Four flashes of light erupt, and from them emerge the unmistakable shapes of incredible beasts - a wolf, a leopard, a panda, a falcon. Suddenly the paths of these children - and the world - have been changed forever.

Enter the world of Erdas, where every child who comes of age must discover if they have a spirit animal, a rare bond between human and beast that bestows great powers to both. A dark force has risen from distant and long-forgotten lands, and has begun an onslaught that will ravage the world. Now the fate of Erdas has fallen on the shoulders of four young strangers . . . and on you.

Part engrossing book series, part action role-playing game - discover your spirit animal and join the adventure in Fall 2013.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In the realm of Erdas, four kids unexpectedly form a bond with the legendary Great Beasts, but they soon learn that this honor comes with the job of defending their world from an evil enemy, the Devourer. Acclaimed author of the Fablehaven series, Mull here offers a new series, Spirit Animals. This first book, Wild Born, is filled with a delightful ambiguity that transcends the formulaic nature of other similar adventure series. Mull introduces readers to an epic tale set in a complex, political world on the brink of war. These four child characters are imperfect heroes who are aware of their responsibility and the risks of participating in the fight. Bonding with the Great Beasts adds an interesting element to the story, as it empowers the children with supernatural abilities that allow them to fight and defend themselves. This multifaceted novel is clearly the introduction to a longer narrative that will engage readers and continue to develop as the series progresses.--Fort, Bethany Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Set in the world of Erdas, this first book in Mull's new series follows four young children who drink magical Nectar and discover that they have spirit animals-a wolf, a leopard, a panda, and a falcon. As Greencloaks (those in possession of spirit animals), the four children must band together to stop a dark force known as the Devourer that threatens Erdas once again. Expertly narrated by Barber, this audio edition transports listeners to a magical and dangerous world. Barber's reading is surprisingly understated, but entirely effective. Her subtle characterizations are accurate, believable, and unique. Fun for both young and old, listening becomes a compulsion with Barber at the helm of this wild ride. Ages 8-12.
