In this fantastic adventure story, the main character, a girl named Sylvie Bartman, lives with a dog named Mr. Jackson and her father – an eccentric composer of music who invents strange and wonderful instruments.
One day, Sylvie returns home from school to find a message written out in toothpaste on the bathroom mirror: her father has been kidnapped! To make matters worse, a frightening ghostly figure visit Sylvie at home that very same night. The half man/half creature is searching for something and refuses to rest until he finds it.
From this point on in the book, Sylvie discovers an underground world of magic and evil. And, with help from her friends, it’s up to her to stop a dark force – the Songman - who is absolutely determined to steal music from the world and use it for his own evil deeds. Can Sylvie stop the Songman from destroying the lives of every creature on Earth?
Here is one of the amazing illustrations you’ll find in Sylvie And The Songman. They were all created by Angela Barrett:
