Jacob is a thirteen-year-old boy with the weight of the world on his shoulders. In school Jacob is a bit of a swot, plus he hasn’t grown up like the rest of his class mates have. His class mates have started shaving and growing marvellous moustaches. Jacob gets picked on for this and most nights goes home alone and upset. On the plus side, Jacob has his favourite comic book to comfort him, Might of the Medieval Volume 1. When walking home Jacob reads his comic and is taken into a new and magical world but on this evening his true adventure is about to begin.
