Seems to be a whole load of confusion regards this achievement but it's quite simple when you understand what's going on.

Level 1 summoning spell will work fine,all leveling it up does is increase it's duration before it will despawn.

When you first get the spell you will summon a wasp which is the lowest enemy in the game.

How the spell works is when the wasp lands the killing blow on an enemy that is higher than it your summon then becomes that creature your spell will never downgrade.

So Wasp kills Bandit in Great Woods Entrance you now have a Bandit summon, Bandit kills Balverine in Darkwoods you now summon a Balverine. If you watch when your creature kills a higher level enemy it instantly morphs into the new summon and that's what pops the achievement.

All that needs establishing now is what is the lowest creature you can kill to pop the achievement. I personally had my bandit kill a minion but they are near the end game. In the other solutions comments it does mention someone getting it from a Balverine so as early as Dark Wood could be a possibility or it might have been a Balverine from later on in Knothole Glade.

Received a number of confirmations now that you need to upgrade it to a Balverine.

Hope this helps.

Edit:- I've looked into the spell a bit further in old guides & found this http://fable.wikia.com/wiki/Summon

Observed sequence of upgrades: Wasp(starting creature)->Stronger Wasps/Insects->Bandits->Undead->Bandit Chief->Stronger Bandits->Stronger Undead->Balverines->Stronger Bandit Chief->White Balverine->Minion Warrior->Minion Spellcaster(strongest)

Edit 2:- Important: Blue beetles have issues attacking an enemy for you and you may be stuck with it.
