"Seth Adam Smith is the American C.S. Lewis: his seemingly light-hearted fantasy actually cloaks poignant and deeply touching Christian themes of forgiveness and redemption." -Charlotte Ashlock, Crazy Idealist
"Be warned, Smith has crafted something you won't want to put down. So clever and fresh, this easily stands out as the most unique piece of fiction I've read in years." -New York Times Bestselling Author, Jason. F. Wright
"Smith's writing style and storytelling is on par with popular storytellers such as Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman.
Many references within the story will remind readers of Gaiman's The Graveyard Book
and Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas
." -Alicia Smock, RollOutReviews.com
"An origin story unlike any other! Rip Van Winkle and the Pumpkin Lantern is the perfect blend of humorous middle grade antics and at times, downright creepy fun! Highly recommended!" - Frank L. Cole, author of The Afterlife Academy
"Seth Adam Smith breathes new life into this classic tale with his creative blend of history and fiction. Rip Van Winkle and The Pumpkin Lantern delivers imaginative characters, roller coaster adventures, magic and mystery, a spine-tingling ghost story, and an inspiring message of self worth.
This book has something for everyone." -Kelly Nelson, Author of The Keeper's Saga
"A fun, light-hearted novel with a purpose and theme comparable to C.S. Lewis' The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe." -Nate Bagley, TEDx Speaker and co-Founder of Loveumentary
"Seth Adam Smith delivers a tale of unique characters, interesting villains, and correlations between symbols, legends and fairytales that are quite inspired. Filled with pirates, witches, imps and nightmares, and a particularly friendly scarecrow, there is a refreshingly Christian undertone regarding the importance of faith and letting one's light shine." -Katrina, Compass Book Ratings
