Sand Dollar Island by Rob Smith

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Not since The Little Prince have adult readers been so strongly invited to set aside reason to take a journey of the heart. A nearly fatal car collision on a country road lands Jeff in a surgical suite clinging to life. His wife, Samantha, is there when he recovers consciousness, but he has another story to tell. The accident has apparently opened a portal to another world, a place where his physical injuries are simply a vague recollection of a different reality. The medical staff attributes his tale to brain injury, but he knows otherwise. How can he seriously convey his adventures in a place where talking animals are the guardians of humans? Jeff trusts his senses even when they draw him deeper into a dimension where he becomes a player in a game of nonsense. Illustrated with sketches of a parallel universe, Sand Dollar Island's impossible adventure takes perceptive travelers on a quest for meaning.
