Alice in Wonderland meets Chronicles of Narnia in Jacob & Sylvia;
With Destiny pulling you in and sacrifice the enchantment behind it all!

On a side note: This would be a fun summer read with the kids around a camp fire. Roasted marshmallows and fireflies will only add to the wonder this book will capture you in :D

Thank you Troy Black for letting me escape into the mind of a child again.


**I received a copy of this book from the author to give my honest opinion. I would rate this 3 and a half

I loved this book! "Jacob & Sylvia" is full of the spontaneous adventures, lovable characters, and classic, fantastical themes that capture a child's heart and imagination. Not just an ordinary children's story, the entirety of the tale is told through a careful cleverness of words, which reveal the inspirational underlying message that adults will read, admire, and want to share with all their friends and family. A book for all ages!

A brilliantly unique read. The unconventional narrative style combines with the book’s child-like perspective to reach its audience in a new way. The characters’ questions about life reflect our own suppressed concerns. If you are looking for a heartfelt, thought-provoking story that is both an action-packed adventure and an ominous tale, then Jacob and Sylvia is for you.

Great read - reminiscent of Dahl in tone. Good for kids, a lot of fun. Probably one of the better kids books out there and with a hint of Lewis thrown in to further create a unique read.
