I love a good story featuring brave kids. C.S. Lewis was a master of such tales and he is usually the standard I use when I read magical adventures about children. If you are a fan of C.S. Lewis or if you just want something you can give or recommend to a young person to read, then I heartily recommend Sebastian in Another World by Victor Mark. Everyone will enjoy this wonderful story, but if you give it to a young person, you will be giving them a mystical and magical experience that they will never forget. And they will never forget you for giving it to them. It’s a win/win for everyone.
Victor Mark has a way of using words that create an atmosphere of magic, while at the same time keeping you firmly anchored in the real world. Sebastian in Another world is a story of friendship, loyalty, and courage. The fact that the heroes are young gives it an added flavor of purity or even innocence. Sebastian, Arthur, Luke, and Melody find themselves on an adventure every bit as exciting as the tales of Narnia. Danger and evil lurk everywhere, but in the end, you just have to be true to yourself and to your friends. Rich in allegory and powerful themes, Sebastian in Another World is the first volume in what I believe will be an exciting new fantasy series. Victor Mark may well be creating a new classic which will inspire young and old for generations to come.
