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?

    Well, she's much more qualified to tell you what to do and give advice, because what can we do? You still should wake her up, she can tell you what it is, and what to do. Not us.

    Oh my god! You okay??!?!?!? I'd wake up your mother, this could be dangerous. A bug might have bitten you, or it's an allergic reaction. It might also be an ear infection. But, you should do something...  Tell your mom. If you can't then if there is some proper medicine for swelling that you can use, use it. Otherwise, tell your mom.
