Unlocking the Kirin Tor Familiar

A lot of us love those vanity pets, especially rare one.* The folks at WarcraftPets.com have shown us how to unlock this pet via one of the achievements.* Here is the full scoop!
The Kirin Tor Familiar is an arcane elemental vanity pet that may be obtained after completing the Higher Learning achievement. This achievement requires you to read eight different books on The Schools of Arcane Magic (which is a reference to the schools of magic in Dungeons & Dragons). Each book spawns in a specific location in Dalaran. The book that spawns may be the book for the achievement or one of many humorous "flavor" books, which do not give credit for the achievement.
If you are fortunate enough to find one of the achievement books, you get credit for reading it by simply clicking on it. There is no channeling involved, and multiple players can read the same book. If you find a flavor text, you should read it in order to reset the timer to try to get the achievement book to spawn. After reading any book, it will despawn three minutes later. A new book will then respawn in 3-4 hours.
Once you have completed the achievement, you will receive a book, The Schools of Arcane Magic - Mastery, in the mail from Rhonin, the Leader of the Kirin Tor. Using this book will transport you to the spires atop Violet Citadel, where you will find Archmage Vargoth. After talking to him, he will teach you how to summon your new pet!
