    This book was amazing

    I enjoyed that it pulled me away from any preconceived notions that I have about how life works and let me have an imagination like a child again. That anything can happen. I loved the way the narrator interjected throughout the story. All around an amazing read.

    “Jacob & Sylvia” is full of the spontaneous adventures

    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!

    Delightfully Witty!

    “Life was never meant to be fair.” A wonderful story that draws you in from the very beginning with fantastical scenery and endearing characters. I enjoyed the narration and humor all throughout this tale. The illustrations for each chapter were a wonderful touch.

    Although the beginning of this story seems like an aimless boy’s journey, that’s the point! You’ll find a startling revelation in chapter two keeps you reading to see what trouble Jacob (and then Sylvia) find next.

    A great read for middle schoolers and up!

    A brilliantly unique read

    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.

    An enchanting story with the heart of Destiny pumping through its pages…

    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 😀

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